Wunsch on Schedule to Return Soon

(SN Report #571) - In what has felt to have been a long time, White Sox lefty reliever Kelly Wunsch, placed on the 15-day disabled list with back problems in mid-June, is finally set to return to the pitching mound.

Wunsch, 31, plans to pitch this week with the triple-A Charlotte Knights and could be up with the Sox by next week.

The back injury was sustained while covering first on a June 11 game against the San Francisco Giants.

In 22 games and 15 2/3 innings, Wunsch has a 1.15 ERA, nine walks and 12 strikeouts. Opponents are batting .102 off him.
