BALTIMORE — White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper was hospitalized Saturday with what was believed to be a recurrence of diverticulitis. Cooper was hospitalized in April and missed 10 days in April with diverticulitis, a common digestive disease that typically occurs within the large intestine.

Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen assumed Cooper’s normal duties.

“We’re going home [Sunday], so he’ll probably stay in the hospital today and maybe fly home with us tomorrow, and then we’ll see what happens in Chicago,” manager Robin Ventura said.
