White Sox general manager Rick Hahn announced Monday that Madrigal recently underwent surgery on his left shoulder, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. The second baseman is expected to require 5-to-6 months of the recovery time.
After jamming his left shoulder in an Aug. 4 game, Madrigal spent most of the month on the injured list before being activated. Following his reinstatement, Madrigal quickly caught fire at the dish, slashing .349/.385/.384 over his final 24 regular-season contests. Despite closing the campaign with a flurry at the dish, offseason surgery was always expected to be in the cards for Madrigal. Based on the timeline the White Sox provided, Madrigal likely won't be at full strength for the start of spring training, but he'll still have a decent chance at being ready to go for Opening Day. Once cleared to play, Madrigal should be locked into an everyday role at the keystone.
Madrigal is not in Thursday's lineup against Cleveland.
He is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak and is batting .400 with one extra-base hit (a double) and zero steals on one attempt over that span. Yolmer Sanchez will handle the keystone and bat eighth.
Madrigal went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Reds.
With Tim Anderson getting a breather, Madrigal moved from ninth in the order to leadoff. It was the eighth multi-hit effort in 21 games for the rookie, whose contact skills have been evident during his introduction to MLB. He struck out once Friday, the first whiff in seven contests and just his sixth in 78 plate appearances.
Madrigal is not in Sunday's lineup against the Tigers.
He is hitting .321 with zero home runs and zero steals in 28 at-bats this month, although he chipped in his lone extra-base hits of the season by hitting a pair of doubles Sept. 8. Danny Mendick will start at the keystone and bat eighth.
Madrigal went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 8-1 victory over the Pirates.
Madrigal has missed a lot of time this season with a shoulder ailment, although he has displayed a knack to get on base during his small sample size. The 23-year-old is 19-for-50 with a .404 on-base percentage thus far in 2020. The White Sox are top-five in the league in runs scored, adding slightly more appeal to Madrigal's outlook.
Madrigal went 2-for-3 with two doubles in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Pirates.
Madrigal's bat has played in MLB but without much pop. His two doubles Tuesday were the first extra-base hits of his career. Since returning from a shoulder injury, the rookie is 13-for-29 (.448) with three RBI and two runs scored while batting out of the nine-hole.
Madrigal is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.
Danny Mendick will start at second base and bat eighth against right-hander Matt Harvey. Madrigal is batting .423 in seven games since returning from a shoulder injury, though all 11 hits in that span have been singles and he still sits with just one walk for the season.
Madrigal isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Royals.
Madrigal is riding a five-game hitting streak since returning from the injured list, but he'll get a breather for the series opener against Kansas City. Danny Mendick will start at second base.
Madrigal went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Royals.
Madrigal is on fire coming off the injured list with a shoulder injury, having gone 5-for-8 with two RBI, two runs and a stolen base across the two games since being activated. While the steal was just his first, Madrigal was a threat in 2019 when he stole 35 bases at three different minor-league stops.
Madrigal went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-6 loss to Kansas City.
Madrigal was activated from the injured list Friday but did not play in that night's game. He's expected to the be the primary second baseman moving forward, but the White Sox got quality work out of Danny Mendick as a fill-in, so manager Rick Renteria would not be shy about pulling Madrigal if he struggles at the dish.
Madrigal is not in Friday's lineup against the Royals.
He was activated from the injured list earlier in the day but will have to wait at least one game before rejoining the starting nine. Danny Mendick is hitting .250 with three home runs over his last nine games, and the White Sox will award him with another start at the keystone.
Madrigal (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.
The 23-year-old has been on the injured list over three weeks with a separated left shoulder, but he'll rejoin the White Sox for Friday's series opener against the Royals. Madrigal should reclaim the starting role at second base, pushing Danny Mendick back to a reserve role.
Manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday that Madrigal (shoulder) will require "at least a few more days" at the team's alternate training site before returning, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Madrigal could still make it back before the end of August, although it appears as though he won't return for the team's current series against the Pirates. If all goes well in Schaumburg, it's possible that the 23-year-old could return for the White Sox's upcoming series against the Royals, which is scheduled to begin Friday.
Madrigal (shoulder) has resumed most baseball activities and remains on track to return before the end of the month, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Madrigal lasted just five games into his debut season before separating his left shoulder in early August. He continues making good progress, though his precise timeline remains unclear. Danny Mendick has been the primary second baseman in his absence.
Madrigal (shoulder) is playing catch and taking groundballs, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Madrigal is hoping for a return this week and appears to be progressing toward that goal. With Leury Garcia (thumb) out until 2021, the second-base job should be Madrigal's once he's ready. Danny Mendick is handling the chores at the keystone until the rookie finishes his rehab.
Madrigal hopes to be back on the field in two weeks after landing on the injured list with a separated left shoulder Wednesday, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
The White Sox originally stated that they hoped Madrigal would be back by the end of the month, but Madrigal's own timeline appears to be a bit more aggressive. Whether that's simply a case of the very common phenomenon of a player being optimistic about his own health or a meaningful change to his prognosis remains to be seen. Danny Mendick has started the last two games at second base in his absence.
Madrigal was diagnosed with a separated left shoulder and will be placed on the 10-day injured list, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The 23-year-old suffered the injury Tuesday as his left arm was jammed into the ground on a feet-first slide attempt. Madrigal is expected to be sidelined for at least a few weeks, but the White Sox hope he'll be able to return by the end of August. Tim Anderson (groin) is also on the IL, leaving Leury Garcia and Danny Mendick as the top options to work in the middle infield.
Madrigal exited Tuesday's game against the Brewers with a left shoulder injury.
The 23-year-old was thrown out attempting to go first-to-third on a single up the middle during the third inning, and his left arm was jammed awkwardly into the ground on his feet-first slide. Madrigal will be further examined Wednesday and should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
Madrigal was removed from Tuesday's game at Milwaukee with an apparent left wrist injury, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The 23-year-old collected a hit during his first at-bat Tuesday, but he hurt himself sliding into third base as he mistakenly decided to test the arm of Avisail Garcia by going first-to-third on a hit up the middle. Madrigal appeared to be in considerable pain and was cradling his wrist as he walked off the field, which is the same wrist he fractured in early 2018. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but he seems likely to be sidelined for at least a few days.
Madrigal went 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-2 win over Kansas City.
Madrigal turned the page on a rough introduction to MLB -- an 0-for-8 in games Friday and Saturday -- with Sunday's four-hit effort. He was integral to Chicago's seven-run seventh inning, scoring the run that broke a 2-2 tie, then driving in the team's final run for his first RBI of the season.
