Sox injury report: Rick Hahn reveals offseason procedures originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The White Sox’ list of end-of-year medical procedures was about as tame as the team could hope for when General manager Rick Hah addressed it Friday in a press conference wrapping up the season.

Hahn gave promising injury updates on catcher Yasmani Grandal, outfielder Adam Engel and pitcher Lance Lynn.

Grandal announced on Instagram a couple weeks ago that he’d undergone surgery on his right knee after the White Sox’s playoff exit in the ALDS. Hahn described the procedure as a cleanup. The GM expects Grandal will be without restrictions by spring training.

“That, we think will help alleviate some of the pain that he played with,” Hahn said, “as well as hopefully improve some of his lateral movement because of the relief of that pain and some of the restrictions that were there in his knee.”

Grandal injured his right knee back in spring training but managed the inflammation to return before Opening Day. Then, in July, he underwent surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left knee. He was out for most of July and August. After being reinstated from the IL, Grandal hit .337 with nine home runs in a stellar end to the season.

Hahn also announced Engle had undergone a minor procedure to “clean up” his left shoulder when the season ended.

“He’s expected to be ready for the start of the next season,” Hahn said.

Engle played just 39 games this season due injury. He had two separate IL stints with a right hamstring strain, plus a third with left shoulder inflammation. Engel also dealt with a groin injury late in the season.

Lynn is on a rest and rest and rehabilitation schedule, according to Hahn, after the right-hander’s short IL stint in September to address right knee inflammation.

“He’ll be reevaluated to see if there’s a need for any minor intervention to help facilitate the healing,” Hahn said. “But (we) foresee him being without restriction come spring either way.”

Reliver Evan Marshall is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery this offseason, as The Athletic’s James Fegan first reported. But on Friday, the White Sox outrighted Marshall to Triple-A Charlotte, along with pitchers Jimmy Cordero and Jace Fry, and outfielder Brian Goodwin. All four will become free agents.
