MINNEAPOLIS — White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson left Thursday’s game against the Minnesota Twins in the third inning with a bruised right calf.

Anderson, leading off first base after he singled in the first inning against Ervin Santana, was struck by Melky Cabrera’s line drive. Anderson was ruled out and Cabrera awarded a single.

Anderson stayed in the game for another at-bat played two innings in the field. He is day-to-day.

“It started tightening up on me,” Anderson said. “I couldn’t move how I wanted to move, kind of uncomfortable.”After getting treatment, Anderson said the calf felt “a lot better.”
