CHICAGO -- Jeff Keppinger was out of the Chicago White Sox’s lineup for a third consecutive day with back spasms, but the club isn’t anticipating a stint on the disabled list.
“It looks like he’ll be good by Tuesday, for sure,” manager Robin Ventura said.
The White Sox have a day off Monday before opening a three-game series and an eight-game, three-city road trip Tuesday at Texas.
Before his back discomfort surfaced, Keppinger had started to recover from a slow start with two hits in three consecutive games.
The White Sox have already seen six players go to the disabled list this season. Keppinger would have ran that total to seven and three from the Opening Day starting lineup.
