White Sox's Adam Engel: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel suffered his setback in his recovery from a hamstring strain and is at least three weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

It's a poorly-timed setback for the White Sox, as Luis Robert was ruled out for most of the season with a strained hip flexor Monday. Engel could be the primary center fielder once he's ready to go, but that won't happen until the last few days of May at the earliest.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Could return early May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel (hamstring) is making progress, but manager Tony La Russa feels he won't be ready until early May, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Engel's return date has been pushed a few times since he landed on the injured list to start the season. He had been expected to get opportunities in left field for the injured Eloy Jimenez (pectoral), but his return has been pushed from mid April to late April and now early May. The White Sox are getting by with a rotation in left field, including Andrew Vaughn, Leury Garcia and now Billy Hamilton, who returned Friday from a stay on the injured list.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Out until late April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel (hamstring) isn't expected to return from the 10-day injured list until the back end of the White Sox's upcoming nine-game homestand, which runs from April 23 through May 2, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Engel is gradually beginning to ramp up the intensity of his workouts, but he still hasn't been cleared for full sprinting while he manages a strained right hamstring. Once he's back in the fold for Chicago, Engel will likely serve as a fourth or fifth outfielder.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Won't be back for road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Sunday that he doesn't expect Engel (hamstring) to return for the team's six-game road trip, which begins Friday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Hahn anticipates that Engel's hamstring strain will keep him on the shelf for a four-game home series with Cleveland to begin this week in addition to road trips to Boston and Cleveland, but the outfielder could be ready to go by late April for the start of the White Sox's next homestand. Whenever he's given the green light to return from the 10-day injured list, Engel will likely be ticketed for a fourth-outfielder role.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Formally moved to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox placed Engel (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Engel was one of three White Sox players placed on the IL as the team finalized its 26-man active roster ahead of Thursday's season opener versus the Angels. The reserve outfielder will likely miss at least the first week and a half of the season while recovering from a left hamstring strain.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Facing multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Tony La Russa said Engel (hamstring) will be sidelined at least a couple weeks, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The 29-year-old exited Saturday's spring game with a right hamstring strain, and the injury will prevent him from being available for Opening Day. A two-week recovery would allow Engel to return for the second series of the season, which begins April 5 at Seattle, though he could end up missing more time.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Diagnosed with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel was diagnosed with a strained right hamstring Saturday and will undergo further evaluation Sunday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

It's already the second injury of camp for Engel, who missed a few days in early March with ankle inflammation. The severity of this particular issue isn't yet clear, but anything more than a day-to-day injury at this stage of spring would likely send him to the injured list to start the year.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel (ankle) will return to the lineup to bat ninth and play center field Thursday against the Giants.

Engel played in the White Sox's spring opener but was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with mild inflammation in his right ankle. The diagnosis didn't sound particularly serious at the time, so it's no surprise to see him back in action just two days later. His preparation for Opening Day shouldn't be meaningfully impacted.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Dealing with mild ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel is battling mild inflammation in his right ankle, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The issue explains why Engel was scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rangers. It doesn't appear serious enough to impact his readiness for Opening Day.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel was scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against Texas.

There hasn't been any report of Engel dealing with an injury, so this could simply be a change of plans by the White Sox. Luis Gonzalez will replace him in the lineup, batting seventh and playing center field.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel signed a one-year, $1.38 million contract with the White Sox on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration.

Engel impressed at the plate while appearing in 36 games for the White Sox in 2020, slashing .295/.333/.477 with three home runs and 12 RBI. He was able to come to an agreement with the club prior to arbitration. The 29-year-old should serve as outfield depth for Chicago to begin the 2021 season.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Surprises with two XBH in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a win over the A's in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series.

He got the start in right field with Leury Garcia in left, replacing Nomar Mazara and Eloy Jimenez (foot) in the outfield corners. Engel came through in a big way while batting near the bottom of the order and this may earn Engel another start in Game 2, even if Jimenez is ready. Mazara has just a .214/.257/.300 slash line in the month of September.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Starts in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in left field for the injured Eloy Jimenez (foot) and went 1-for-3 with a double in Friday's 10-0 loss to the Cubs.

Jimenez will not play in the season-ending series against the Cubs due to a right mid-foot sprain, which could extend into the postseason. Engel or Jarrod Dyson will start in left field over the final two games. Engel is enjoying his finest professional season, which has been aided by a .361 BABIP.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Enters for Jimenez
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel entered Thursday's game after Eloy Jimenez departed with soreness in his right foot.

Jimenez will be evaluated Friday and could miss time over the weekend. In that case, the right-handed hitting Engel or lefty Jarrod Dyson will start in left field.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Starts against righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in right field and went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

Engel typically starts against left-handers but replaced Nomar Mazara against righty Randy Dobnak. Mazara, who is 2-for-19 over the last six games, is batting a soft .232/.298/.272 over 28 starts this season. After Tuesday's performance, Engel is batting .306/.342/.444. He's outhitting Mazara and is considered the better defender of the two.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Delivers as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 1-for-1 with an RBI in Monday's 3-1 win over Minnesota.

Engel entered as a pinch hitter for Nomar Mazara in the eighth inning when left-hander Taylor Rogers came in to pitch and delivered the game-winning run. The righty-hitting Engel came up to the majors with a reputation of an all-glove, no-bat outfielder, but he's turned himself into a competent hitter. He's a lineup regular against left-handers and has a .900 OPS against southpaws. He's batting a career-high .294 and has improved as a hitter each season since becoming a major-leaguer in 2017.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Starts against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in right field and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Thursday's 11-6 win over Kansas City.

Per usual, Engel started with the White Sox facing a left-hander. He and Nomar Mazara are platooning in right, so Mazara should return to action Friday against Royals right-hander Brady Singer. Engel is batting .290/.333/.452 over 66 plate appearances in 2020.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Starts again for Robert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in center field and went 1-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Tigers.

Engel started a second straight game in center while Luis Robert nursed a sore hand. Robert could return Friday, but Engel could then move to right field, as the White Sox are scheduled to face Cubs left-hander Jon Lester. The White Sox's primary starter in right field, the left-handed hitting Nomar Mazara, notoriously struggles against southpaws.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Starts for injured Robert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in center field and went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

Engel returned from the COVID-19 injured list in time to fill in for the injured Luis Robert (hand) in center field. White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Robert was "just a little sore," suggesting he didn't play Wednesday out of an abundance of caution. Engel could be back to a reserve role as early as Thursday's finale against Detroit.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

Engel had been on the list for two days after coming in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus, but he's evidently been cleared to play. He should return to his bench role going forward. Cheslor Cuthbert was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
