More horrific injury news has arrived for the Chicago White Sox, as Nick Madrigal has a torn hamstring and may need surgery at the end of the season.
In a year full of hopes and excitement for Chicago White SoxInjuries continue to bring dark clouds over this team. The latest update to second baseman Nick Madrigal made things worse for AL Centrals and the leader Tony La Russa.
Rick Hahn, Chicago’s general manager, announced Thursday that Madrigal has ruptured his hamstring. To make matters worse, there is a possibility that he may need to undergo surgery at the end of the season.
Nick Madrigal will likely need hamstring surgery
With Madrigal headed to the injured list for 60 days, the team called up defensive player Brian Goodwin to replace him on the list. The hope is that Madrigal will be able to rest, rehabilitate and return to a healthy enough condition to play later this year, but things are not looking good now.
He fell from his injury on Wednesday evening, and fans immediately began to panic. You can tell how much pain he was in. Now, the White Sox hope to maintain their lead at AL Central while Madrigal is sidelined. This is of course not the club’s first major injury, with Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert still out.
Despite this, Chicago enters the competition on Thursday with a 37-24 score. The team is four games against the Cleveland Indians at the top of the division standings. For now, the White Sox will need to keep moving forward without many major players available. Before coming down with his hit, Madrigal was hitting .317 with two homers and a 32 RBI.
