The White Sox put Lillibridge on the disabled list prior to Friday’s game. But the good news was that the fracture was non-displaced, so he will not require surgery.
“Two to three weeks in this hard cast and another soft cast for two weeks,” said Lillibridge, joking how the cast he’s currently sporting allows him to play video games and drive a little bit. “About a six-week process.
“Having it happen at the end of the year, I’m happy it wasn’t in June trying to come back. I won’t be swinging until late November anyway. If it was going to happen, it happened at this time and I appreciate it. Obviously, I wish I was finishing and having some fun out there still.”
Hopefully Lillibridge recovers fully and comes back strong next year. He had a heck of a season this year (one that I didn’t expect).
