Found September 06, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has struggled immensely this season. For this reason, it's not surprising to hear that he's been dealing with shoulder issues over the last year. As a result of the lingering ailment, Flowers underwent exploratory surgery to attempt to reveal the cause of the injury, according to Todd Karpovich of MLB.com. Flowers initially injured his shoulder about a year ago and he's never fully recovered, according to Karpovich. This help explains his awful line of .195/.247/.355 over 84 games this season for the White Sox. The exploratory procedure revealed no structural damage, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, good news for Flowers and the White Sox. During the operation, the catcher's rotator cuff and labrum were debrided, and Van Schouwen adds that doctors also performed general cleanup procedures. While no extensive damage was discovered, Van Schouwen notes that a two-to-three month recover time is the best-case scenario for Flowers. This means that he's definitely out for the season, and it casts at least a little doubt on his availability for the start of the 2014 campaign, depending on how his rehab goes. For the time being, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said that Flowers' absence will allow the team to see what Bryan Anderson can do behind the plate.

Chicago White Sox drop 7th straight

The Chicago White Sox had won eight of their last nine games and things were looking up. But then the road trip happened. Since heading into Boston on August 30th, the Sox have dropped seven in a row. Poor run support is mostly to blame, but a few mediocre pitching performances did not help the cause. Only Chris Sale, rookie Erik Johnson, and Jose Quintana have turned in quality...

Jacob Petricka Looks MLB Ready, At Least So Far

Despite the White Sox' eight-game losing streak, we're doing what we can to find positives with this ball club. One has been new reliever Jake Petricka. As we discussed in early August and here when he was called up, the 25 year-old former minor league starter has a decent shot at a set-up role with the 2014 White Sox. And so far, he's been pretty much as...

White Sox fall to Orioles 3-1 to extend skid to 7

Dayan Viciedo had two singles for the White Sox, who went 0-3 in Boston and dropped...

White Sox skid hits 8 with 4-0 loss to Orioles

The Chicago White Sox had just dropped their eighth straight game to fall deeper into the AL Central cellar, and someone asked manager Robin Ventura if his players might be putting too much pressure on themselves to win.

Johnson shaky in debut, White Sox lose to Yankees

Erik Johnson's major league debut came at Yankee Stadium against a $230 million team in the middle of a pennant race. No wonder he was nervous. ''Tough draw for your first one,'' veteran teammate Paul Konerko said. ''He held his own.'' Struggling ace CC Sabathia pitched into the eighth inning before Mariano Rivera earned his first four-out save...

White Sox lose 4-3 to Orioles in 10 innings

The Chicago White Sox were hoping for one last magic act from closer Addison Reed. It just didn't work out. The end of this show left them shaking their heads once again. Reed yielded Matt Wieters' game-ending, two-run single in the 10th inning, sending Chicago to a 4-3 loss at the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. It was the ninth consecutive loss for the White Sox, who...

Plexiglas saves Yankees fans from dangerous shards of broken bat (VIDEO)

Bats break at baseball games all of the time — but few of the incidents are as scary as this video shows.
