White Sox Sparkplug Madrigal Out For Year After Surgery

·1-min read

CHICAGO: White Sox second baseman Nick Madrigal will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery Tuesday to repair tears in his right hamstring.

The AL Central leaders, who have overcome significant injuries this season, said Madrigal was expected to be fully recovered by next spring.

Madrigal was hurt last week trying to beat out a grounder. Chicago had put him on the 60-day injured list and held out hope he might recover to play again this year.

The 24-year-old rookie had been a sparkplug for the White Sox, hitting .305 while scoring 30 runs and driving in 21 over 54 games. He was tied for the AL lead with four triples.

Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa had frequently praised Madrigal for his aggressive, scrappy style.

Danny Mendrick and Leury Garca were expected to share second base in Madrigal’s absence.

Slugging outfielder Eloy Jimnez hasn’t played this season after rupturing his left pectoral tendon in spring training. He was cleared this week to resume baseball activities and the White Sox hope to have him in the lineup down the stretch.

Center fielder Luis Robert is out with torn right hip flexor and also could be back late in the season.
