Madrigal will miss the remainder of the 2021 season but is expected to be without restrictions by spring 2022.— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) June 15, 2021
Per the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), Madrigal suffered the setback racing to first base in an attempt to beat out a grounder in the seventh inning of last Wednesday's loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. The 24-year-old was batting .305 with two home runs and 21 RBI across 54 games this season before the injury.
As John Grochowski noted for the Chicago Sun-Times, Madrigal was previously placed on the 60-day injured list before Tuesday's announcement.
Chicago began Tuesday's action at 41-25 and in first place in the American League Central standings, 4.5 games ahead of the second-place Cleveland Indians.
