Lopez was still feeling pain in his right side Friday, a day after he was removed from a start, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The right-hander was removed from Thursday's start after 4.1 innings.
Manager Rick Renteria doesn't feel the injury is serious, but the White Sox will be cautious with one of their top pitching prospects. If the pain doesn't subside in the next 24-to-48 hours, it's very likely Lopez won't make his scheduled start Tuesday.
Santana (13-7) picked up the win in Friday's 10-3 rout of the Diamondbacks, giving up three runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings while striking out six.
The Twins did most of their damage after Santana had left the game, so while the final score suggests he had an easy night, it was anything but as the veteran righty allowed all three of his runs in the first two innings before settling down. Santana now has 16 quality starts on the year heading into his next outing Wednesday on the road against a White Sox squad he's dominated in 2017 (3-0, 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 18:5 K:BB in three starts).
Peralta went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 10-3 loss to the Twins.
His 13th blast of the year was one of seven on the night, but unfortunately for the D-backs the other six came off Twins bats. Peralta now has a .327/.404/.592 slash line through 13 games in August with three homers, eight RBI and 12 runs.
Godley (5-6) fell to the Twins on Friday, giving up four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out 10 over 5.1 innings.
He needed 106 pitches (63 strikes) to record 16 outs, but Godley actually left the game with the score knotted at 3-3, only for Jorge De La Rosa to quickly allow his inherited runner to score and saddle Godley with the loss. The 10 Ks tied his season high, and the right-hander's 4.04 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 54:15 K:BB in 42.1 innings since the All-Star break remain useful fantasy numbers in deeper formats. Godley will look to bounce back in his next start Thursday on the road against the Mets.
Joyce went 2-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Astros.
His eighth-inning shot off Chris Devenski, Joyce's 18th of the season, was the only offense Oakland could muster. The veteran slugger is enjoying a big August so far, slashing .317/.370/.805 with five homers and 12 RBI in 12 games.
