Matt Lindstrom is off the disabled list and back in the White Sox’s bullpen three months after ankle surgery, but it’s unclear if he’ll resume closing.

At the time of the injury Lindstrom had six saves with a 3.32 ERA in 19 appearances, but he’d also blown three save chances and in his absence White Sox manager Robin Ventura has turned to several ninth-inning options.

Most recently Ventura has used Jake Petricka as the primary closer and he has 2.02 ERA in 58 innings overall, so it’s possible the manager will work the 34-year-old Lindstrom back into the bullpen mix in a setup role.
