News: Lindstrom struck out two in a perfect inning during a blowout loss to the Giants on Wednesday. Impact: Lindstrom's first appearance back from the disabled list was not too challenging, as he came to the mound against the Giants' sixth, seventh and eighth hitters with the White Sox already down by six runs. He should get most of his action in non-save situations for now, as manager Robin Ventura is comfortable with Jake Petricka in that role.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Robin Ventura said Jake Petricka will remain the White Sox's closer even with Lindstrom (ankle) returning from the disabled list Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Of course, Ventura made his comments before Petricka blew his third save of the season against the Giants on Tuesday. However, we doubt he would flip his opinion within a matter of hours. Lindstrom did not pitch on back-to-back days in his rehab at Triple-A Charlotte, so he may yet need some time to take over even a late-inning role.(RotoWire, )

News: Lindstrom (ankle) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Lindstrom was roughed up for seven earned runs in 4.2 innings over five rehab games, but the White Sox believe he is healthy enough to return to the big club. Lindstrom was the White Sox's closer when he was injured in May, but given his minor league struggles and Jake Petricka's success as the closer of late, it remains to be seen if he will jump right back into the ninth-inning role.(RotoWire, )

News: Lindstrom (ankle) struck out one during a scoreless inning at Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday. Impact: The White Sox are expected to bring Lindstrom back to the big league roster within the next week or so, but it's unclear if he'll immediately enter the ninth-inning mix or be utilized in middle relief. The latter role seems more likely until he shows that he's completely healthy again.(RotoWire, )

News: Lindstrom (ankle) should be activated from the disabled list "within a week," Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Lindstom has appeared in three minor league games since July 31, allowing three earned runs on five hits over three innings. His most recent performance looked more promising, as he didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one in a scoreless frame. If he can do this for another appearance or two in the minors, he should be back with the White Sox by early next week. He'll be eased into action, likely serving in middle relief to start.(RotoWire, )
