Herrera (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

He had been shelved since July 17 and logged a 7.36 ERA in 33 MLB innings prior to the injury. Look for him to primarily work in mid-leverage spots over the rest of the season.

Herrera (oblique) is scheduled for another rehab appearance with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Herrera struggled in his first rehab appearance with the Knights, but he bounced back and fired a scoreless inning while recording a strikeout Tuesday against Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. If everything goes off without a hitch Thursday, Herrera -- who has been sidelined since June 20 with an oblique injury -- could be cleared to rejoin the White Sox shortly thereafter.

Herrera (oblique) made his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, working an inning and giving up four runs on five hits.

EDGE Analysis

Herrera needed 22 pitches to record the three outs and surrendered three extra-base hits -- including two home runs -- in his first competitive outing since July 17. Needless to say, the White Sox will probably want to see Herrera show improved command in subsequent minor-league outings before bringing him back from the 10-day injured list.

Herrera (oblique) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is an encouraging sign for Herrera, who landed on the injured list over the weekend with a right oblique strain. It remains to be seen whether the right-hander will require a rehab assignment before rejoining the White Sox, though that will likely depend on how he responds as he progresses through his throwing program.

The White Sox placed Herrera on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right oblique strain, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Oblique injuries often linger therefore carry volatile recovery timetables, so it wouldn't be surprising if Herrera was on the shelf beyond the minimum amount of time. The former Royals closer hadn't pitched since Wednesday and has been abysmal in a setup role this season, posting a 7.36 ERA and 1.82 WHIP across 33 innings. The White Sox recalled Jimmy Cordero from Triple-A Charlotte to provide the team with another arm in the bullpen.

EDGE Analysis

Herrera has allowed runs in each of his last six appearances and has long since been removed from a setup role for closer Alex Colome. His ERA climbed to 7.84 with a 4.1 BB/9 over 31 innings.

Herrera allowed a two-run home run without retiring a batter in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Herrera, who missed time since Sunday with a back issue, came on in the bottom of the ninth inning with a man on and served up a walkoff bomb to Jose Ramirez. It was the sixth time in the last nine appearances he's allowed runs. After a hopeful start to 2019, Herrera now has a 5.82 ERA and 17:6 K:BB over 17 innings.

Herrera (back) is available to pitch Wednesday against the Indians, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Herrera is good to go Wednesday after missing the first two games of the series due to a stiff back. Now that he's healthy again, the 29-year-old, who owns a 5.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB through 17 innings this season, should settle back into a setup role for the White Sox.

Herrera (back) played catch Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

While this is a positive sign for Herrera, he remains day-to-day with back spasms. Jace Fry, Ryan Burr and Josh Osich are all setup options in his absence.
