Zavala was placed on the 7-day injured list Wednesday with left wrist inflammation, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The move is retroactive to Wednesday, so Zavala will be eligible to return in six days, should he prove ready. Prior to landing on the shelf, the backstop compiled a lackluster .203/.230/.458 slash line with three homers in 14 games with Triple-A Charlotte.
Zavala (quadriceps) is available off the bench for Saturday's Cactus League game against the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Zavala has been limited to just three at-bats this spring while tending to the strained left quad. It's unclear if the White Sox plan on using him Saturday, but the team's decision to make him available suggests that there's no longer much concern about the injury. Zavala is expected to open the upcoming season at Triple-A Charlotte.
Zavala (quad strain) hopes to return to action this weekend, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
He suffered the injury in the first Cactus League game of the season and has yet to return, but it sounds like that could happen this weekend. Zavala is likely ticketed for Triple-A to start the season, but is the third catcher on the organizational depth chart, so it is quite possible that he makes his big-league debut this season.
Zavala hasn't played since the first game of spring due to a strained left quad, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Zavala went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs score in the game but unfortunately has been unable to retake the field. The 25-year-old hopes to return to action for the White Sox sometime next week.
