Jenks seeking kidney stone relief

Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks said on Monday that he will go to Rush Medical Center to get a procedure done in hopes of alleviating his kidney stone problem.

Jenks has been suffering with this problem for over a week now. He expects the operation to be done on an outpatient basis. Although he should immediately be relieved of his problem, he might need a few days of recovery before he can get back on the field.

The South Siders are in the middle of a 10-game homestand and begin a three-game series with the Angels on Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
