News: Lindstrom (ankle) threw live batting practice Thursday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: The next step for Lindstrom will likely be a simulated game, before he'd head out on a rehab assignment. Everything the White Sox have said previously suggests that Lindstrom will return to the White Sox in early August, at which point he could slot back in at closer if Jake Petricka can't lock the job down.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Robin Ventura said Lindstrom will go out on a rehab assignment the first week of August, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Impact: A previous report indicated Lindstrom might return in "early August," and it looks like he is still working on that timeline, albeit perhaps in the second week of the month. Ventura has yet to announce whether Lindstrom will be inserted back into the closer role upon his return, but that is likely given the position's instability since he hit the DL in May.(RotoWire, )

News: Lindstrom (ankle) could return in early August, the Daily Herald reports. Impact: He threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday and has another on tap for Monday; if all goes well, he should throw a simulated game later in the week. Assuming there are no flare-ups during that time, he could be on a rehab assignment by this time next week. Lindstrom said he will only need a handful of appearances in the minors before he is ready to return to duty, and is likely to re-assume the closer role.(RotoWire, )

News: Lindstrom (ankle) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session and did some fielding drills Saturday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Lindstrom was reportedly happy with how everything felt when throwing and fielding. He'll likely throw a live bullpen session at some point and eventually make his way to a rehab session before rejoining the team. The target date currently is at some point in August, which still seems like the probable outcome after the most recent session.(RotoWire, )
