Quote of the Day
Regrettably, outfielder Charlie Tilson was placed on the disabled list as a result of tearing a hamstring during Tuesday night’s game–his first in the majors. He is set for surgery today. Outfielder J.B. Shuck was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte to replace Tilson on the roster.
Beginning tomorrow night, the White Sox will host the Orioles in a three-game weekend series at U.S. Cellular Field.
