Madrigal (hamstring) had successful surgery Tuesday and will officially miss the rest of the 2021 season.
The surgery repaired the proximal tendon tears in Madrigal's right hamstring. The second baseman was initially placed on the 60-day injured list with optimism of a late-season return, but any such hopes were eliminated with the team's Tuesday update. Madrigal is expected to be fully recovered in time for the start of next season.
The White Sox placed Madrigal on the 60-day injured list Thursday with a proximal tear of his right hamstring.
Madrigal was removed from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with right hamstring tightness after he was hurt while running to first base in the seventh inning. After getting re-evaluated, the 24-year-old received a new diagnosis for his injury, which will necessitate a recovery period of at least two months. The White Sox haven't ruled out Madrigal from undergoing surgery, so he could be at risk of missing the remainder of the season. Danny Mendick and Leury Garcia should see increased time at second base going forward, while outfielder Brian Goodwin's contract was selected by the White Sox in a corresponding move.
