The Chicago White Sox are dealing with injuries throughout their system, and several players have been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
Minor league pitcher Ian Hamilton will miss the rest of the season after he suffered multiple facial fractures when he was hit in the face by a line drive a few weeks ago, the team announced Friday. Hamilton will require surgery to repair his jaw, and he also lost several teeth when he was hit by the ball.
He appeared in 16 minor league games this season, posting a 9.92 ERA.
Pitchers Ryan Burr and Jimmy Lambert both recently underwent Tommy John surgery and are also done for the season, the team said.
Burr was placed on the 10-day injured list on May 28 with a right elbow capsule strain. He appeared in 16 games for the White Sox and posted a 4.58 ERA and a 1-1 record in those games.
Lambert pitched in 11 games for Double-A Birmingham, posting a 3-4 record and a 4.55 ERA for the Barons in those starts.
Finally relief pitcher Zack Burdi is out for the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his right patella. He has a combined 6.75 ERA in 20 appearances at Single-A Kannapolis and Double-A Birmingham this season.
Earlier Friday the team announced that shortstop Tim Anderson had been placed on the injured list with a high ankle sprain.
