Ailing pitching coach Cooper misses game

BALTIMORE — Pitching coach Don Cooper missed the White Sox game against the Orioles on Friday night, apparently experiencing symptoms associated with Diverticulitis, a stomach condition that hospitalized him during the team’s first road trip in April.

Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen took over Cooper’s duties.

Cooper, 56, went back to the team hotel.

“He might have had a little flare-up with his earlier issues,” manager Robin Ventura said after the Sox’ 4-0 loss to the Orioles, their eighth in a row. “He didn’t look too good so they sent him home.”

Cooper was out 10 days in April.
