Ozzie Guillen:

I haven’t had a chance to speak with Freddy lately, but my three kids are constantly keeping me up to date on his rehabilitation. If Freddy is able to regain the strength in his shoulder, then anything is possible. Right now Freddy is with Bartolo Colon in Glendale, Arizona working hard to see if he can come back and help us in the second half. Me, more than anyone, would love to be able to count on Freddy in the second half.

Speaking of Freddy “The Chief” Garcia, did you know his .656 Win-Loss % is the the 2nd highest in White Sox history? Baseball-Reference says so (500 IP or 50 decisions required).

UPDATE: Mark Gonzales gives us another update:

The Sox have Freddy on a methodical schedule. After his forgetable New York Mets experience, Freddy will call the shots as to when he feels ready to pitch in a minor league game, and then everyone will monitor his progress in the event the Sox need him down the stretch.

Freddy still knows how to pitch, and if his arm strength catches up to his knowledge, he can help the Sox.
