Tilson (foot) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Friday to make room for Mike Pelfrey on the 40-man roster, J.J. Stankevitz of CSN Chicago reports.
Tilson was on pace for a late May return, but thanks to this move, he won't be back in the majors for the White Sox until early June. The White Sox don't have any better solutions at center field right now, though, so Tilson's job should be awaiting him whenever he's eligible to return. He had a walking boot taken off earlier this week, and his rehab is progressing as expected.
Tilson will ramp up load-bearing activities after having the walking boot removed from his right foot, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Tilson is recovering from a stress reaction in his right foot he first sustained in February. He was the likely starting center fielder prior to his injury and that status hasn't changed given the poor production the White Sox are getting out of replacements Jacob May and Leury Garcia.
Tilson (foot) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes reports.
The White Sox aren't expecting to have Tilson back until at least late May after suffering a stress reaction in his right foot early in the spring that continues to confine him to a walking boot. Tilson is expected to shed the boot in mid-April, but will then need up to a month to increase his baseball activities before the White Sox feel comfortable activating him. While Tilson is out, Jacob May is on track to serve as the team's primary option in center field.
Tilson (foot) is expected to need at least a month to ramp up baseball activity after he's able to shed a walking boot, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The White Sox announced Sunday that Tilson would need to remain in a walking boot for another three weeks at least. Given that he didn't get in any spring training work, when he sheds the boot in mid-April, Tilson will be starting from scratch.
Tilson (foot) received a medical exam Sunday and will be in his walking boot for three more weeks, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Tilson's recovery from the stress reaction in his foot appears to be a slow one. Once healthy, the speedy outfielder is expected to rejoin the White Sox as the team's starting center fielder. In the meantime, Peter Bourjos and Jacob May are the leading candidates to start in center field while Tilson remains unavailable.
