CHICAGO – The White Sox “Man of Steal” is once again losing some time over a nagging injury that’s kept him out of the lineup the majority of the time since spring training.
Outfielder Adam Engel is headed back to the Injured List for ten days after aggrivating his strained right hamstring that kept him out the first two months of the season. Outfielder Luis Gonzalez has been called up from Triple-A Charlotte to take his place.
Engel strained his right hamstring during a spring training game against the Indians on March 20th at Camelback Ranch. That injury would linger and eventually keep him out the first two months of the season before he was finally able to return on June 6th.
On that day at Guaranteed Rate Field, he made on of his signature home run-robbing catches in right-centerfield on a ball hit by Detroit’s Niko Goodrum. It was one of ten games that Engel has played in so far in 2010 as he’s hitting .241/.313/.552 with three home runs and four RBI.
He last played againts the Astros on Saturday in Houston, going 1-for-4 in a 7-3 White Sox.
