Bummer (knee) has thrown a bullpen session but has yet to resume sprinting, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Bummer has been on the injured list with a strained right knee since Monday. The fact that he's been able to throw is undoubtedly a good sign, but whether or not he'll be back when first eligible remains to be seen.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Anticipates short stay
Bummer (knee) believes he can return from the injured list in the minimum 15 days, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Bummer will be eligible to return May 22 and seemingly has a chance to do so, but it's unclear whether his optimism is shared by the White Sox organization. He wasn't at his best prior to the injury, as he struggled to a 4.91 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 11 innings.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Hits injured list as expected
Bummer (knee) was placed on the 15-day injured list as expected Monday.
Bummer hadn't pitched since Friday, so the transaction can be backdated two days, leaving him eligible to return May 22. It's not entirely clear whether or not he'll be able to do so, especially with the White Sox now referring to his injury as a strain rather than merely soreness. Joe Kelly (biceps) returned from the injured list to take his place in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Ticketed for IL with sore knee
White Sox manager Tony La Russa said after Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox that Bummer is slated to land on the injured list with a sore knee, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Records loss in extra innings
Bummer (0-1) recorded the loss Thursday, allowing three runs on a hit and two walks with two strikeouts over 1.2 innings in a 5-2 extra-inning loss to the Royals.
The southpaw is part of the high-leverage mix for the White Sox, and with Liam Hendriks (back) unavailable, Bummer got the call in a tie game in the top of the 10th. He couldn't get the job done, however, and while he has a save and four holds on the season, he's also been charged with a blown save and a loss in his last two appearances. Should Hendriks miss significant time, Bummer could find himself in the mix for saves, but Kendall Graveman would likely be the next man up for Chicago.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Credited with win
Bummer (3-5) did not allow a hit or walk while striking out one over a scoreless seventh inning to pick up the win over the Angels on Tuesday.
Starter Lucas Giolito came off the injured list and was removed after 87 pitches and four innings with the White Sox leading 7-3. That left the door open for a reliever to pick up the win, but the official scorer bypassed two relievers to credit Bummer with the win. The two relievers prior to Bummer combined to allow five baserunners over two scoreless innings.
