BOSTON – White Sox fans can breath a little easier.
Tim Anderson has a sprained right ankle and x-rays came back negative.
Anderson had to be helped off the field in the fifth inning against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night with a lower leg injury.
A slick surface caused him to misstep on his throw to first while fielding a ground ball up the middle.
Anderson will be re-evaluated Wednesday.
He was visibly in pain, writhing on the ground before Sox skipper Rick Renteria helped him to his feet and into the dugout.
Anderson already had two hits in the game.
The 26-year-old shortstop is in the middle of his best season in the big leagues, batting over .300 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 15 stolen bases.
