White Sox Shortstop Tim Anderson Set to Begin Rehab Assignment

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is set to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte this weekend after being out of the game since April 10 due to a left knee injury. Anderson suffered the knee sprain while trying to field an errant throw during an attempted force play at third base against the Minnesota Twins. Anderson's injury has had a significant impact on the team's season record. Without him, the White Sox have only won two games since and have fallen to 7-18 on the season. They were also swept by the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. Anderson, a two-time All-Star and a .288 career hitter, hit .298 through the first 11 games of the 2023 season. He has spent his entire career with the White Sox after being selected in the first round of the 2013 MLB draft. According to Chicago White Sox manager Pedro Grifol, Anderson may only require "10-15 at-bats" during the rehab assignment. With that, Anderson could be reinstated from the injury list in time for the home series against the Twins on May 2. White Sox fans are looking forward to Anderson's return as they believe he is the on-field leader for the team, especially after the free-agency departure of first baseman Jose Abreu to the Houston Astros this past off-season. Anderson is the heart and soul of the club, said Grifol, adding that "as he goes, we go. He's the energy... this club plays way better with him than without him." However, with the Chicago White Sox already seven games out of first place in the American League Central, and just two games away from having the worst record in the majors, many Chicagoans believe that Anderson may be traded away this summer. As one of the most tenured members of the White Sox team, Anderson played in every game this season before getting injured. With Anderson set to return soon, the White Sox hope to turn their fortunes around and recover from their dismal start to the season.
