Some unfortunate news here for the White Sox.
According to CSNChicago.com’s Dan Hayes, closer Matt Lindstrom will have surgery Friday to repair a tear of the sheath in his left ankle and is going to miss at least three months. That means a late-August return is the best-case scenario.
Lindstrom injured his left ankle Monday while attempting to field an Alcides Escobar bunt.
He has already been placed on the disabled list.
Nate Jones had a microdiscectomy earlier this month and will likely be sidelined through mid-June.
