Chicago White Sox third baseman Yolmer Sanchez (hand) was lifted from the third inning of Thursday's game after an incident on a pick-off attempt. While Sanchez was on first base following a single, Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd attempted to pick him off. During the play, Sanchez dove toward the bag and his right hand was stepped on by Tigers first baseman Niko Goodrum. His hand was bleeding and he left the game with a towel wrapped around his hand as Daniel Palka came in to pinch run. The injured hand is Sanchez's throwing hand, which of course isn't good news. The White Sox should have an update on the injury later today, so stay tuned.
Chicago White Sox infielder Yolmer Sanchez (illness) has been scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox. Sanchez was reportedly sent back to the hotel after being diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection. He shouldn't land on the injured list, but is considered day-to-day. Jose Rondon will draw the start at second base and bat eighth versus lefty David Price. Rondon doesn't have much upside with the bat, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Chicago White Sox second baseman Yolmer Sanchez went 3-for-4 with a run scored on Thursday versus the Houston Astros. Sanchez had a double and two singles on the evening and is now hitting .235 for the season and doesnt offer much potential in all formats. Sanchez can remain on waivers.
