White Sox place star SS Tim Anderson on 10-day IL with hamstring strain

The Chicago White Sox announced Wednesday that they placed shortstop Tim Anderson on the 10-day injured list with a strained left hamstring.

The move comes after Anderson left in the first inning of Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Angels. He strained his left leg while running out a ground ball.

The 27-year-old is slashing .200/.200/.400 with one home run and one RBI on three hits in four games this season. 

Anderson won the batting title in 2019 and a Silver Slugger in 2020. He also finished seventh in MVP voting last season after slashing .322/.357/.529 with 10 home runs and 21 RBI. 

The White Sox recalled infielder Danny Mendick from their alternate training site in a corresponding move.
