Before tonight, the White Sox had lost their last eight games, and things are really spiraling out of control. The Sox now stand at 29-38, dead last in their division. Ventura lost his cool to the point of ejection Wednesday. The Sox have averaged around 1 run in the last 10 games. Needless to say, things are tough on the South Side.
White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is planning on and hoping for his own return on Tuesday, June 2nd. Abreu injured his finger earlier this week, however the X-ray results came back negative for a fracture. The first baseman is a significant part of the White Sox offense, as he provides a much needed mid order pop for the offense. This all coming at a time when the South Siders are sitting at 23-26, last place in the division, and 7 games behind AL Central leader, Twins.
