Right-hander Evan Marshall left the White Sox’ 7-6 victory over the Twins on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field with right forearm soreness. He is day to day.
Marshall recorded two outs, allowed two doubles and was charged with two runs in the seventh inning before leaving alongside assistant trainer Josh Fallin. He has pitched to a 5.60 ERA this season after posting ERAs of 2.49 and 2.38 the previous two seasons.
“Something in his forearm,” manager Tony La Russa said. “Fingers crossed.”
Marshall was a dependable late-inning pitcher in the last two seasons but has struggled this season. He was replaced by right-hander Ryan Burr, who retired all four batters he faced. Burr has retired the last 15 batters faced and 34 of 38 this season. Burr extended his career high scoreless streaks to 12.0 innings and nine games.
