    • Putnam (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday. This is strictly a housekeeping move for the White Sox, as Putnam will likely miss most, if not all, of the 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late June. Prior to his injury, the reliever posted a 1.04 ERA and 0.35 WHIP in 8.2 innings with the big-league team this past year.

      Putnam (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday. The reliever underwent Tommy John surgery last week, ending his injury-hampered 2017 campaign after just 8.2 innings pitched. The routine move by the team clears room on the 40-man roster, as Putnam begins the long road to recovery, which puts him on track for a return sometime near the middle of next season.

    • Putnam (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery late last week, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. This is a tough break for Putnam, who also had his 2016 season cut short due to elbow issues. The 29-year-old will now spend the next 12-to-18 months rehabbing before returning to the White Sox's bullpen at some point in 2019. He compiled a 1.04 ERA and nine strikeouts in 8.2 innings of relief this season before landing on the disabled list.

    • Putnam (elbow) will continue to rehab in Chicago during the White Sox's current road trip, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The White Sox won't be back in Chicago until Monday, so expect the team to provide an update on Putnam's condition shortly thereafter. If Putnam responds well to treatment over the next few days, the White Sox could clear him to head to the minors to begin a rehab assignment.

    • White Sox's Zach Putnam: Throws off mound
      By RotoWire Staff

      Putnam (elbow) threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since going on the disabled list, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The best Putnam could say about the session was that there were no setbacks. He'll continue to build off it but there's no timetable for his return to the White Sox's bullpen.
