UPDATES & NEWS
Update: Matt Lindstrom's injury has been defined as a sublexing peroneal tendon in his left ankle.
Right now there is no word on what the White Sox will do in the 9th inning going forward. Ronald Belisario and Daniel Webb would be at the top of the short list to take over at closer. Lindstrom suffered his injury during Monday's game against the Royals.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
