MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Catcher Yasmani Grandal was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday by the Chicago White Sox with a torn tendon in his left knee.

Grandal was injured during an at-bat in Monday's loss in Minnesota. Chicago estimated Grandal will be out approximately four to six weeks.

“It was a twist that he made as he made his swing," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Something got caught. It didn’t free up to make a turn on it. It got caught and something popped. I’m anxious to get a full diagnosis. He’s on his way to Chicago, maybe in Chicago already, and we’ll know more tomorrow.”

Grandal was hitting just .188 as Chicago's starting catcher, but he had a .388 on-base percentage in 63 games to go with 14 home runs and 38 RBIs.

Seby Zavala, 27, was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte and was with the team for Tuesday's game in Minnesota. Zack Collins started Tuesday at catcher.

“He was as productive as any position player we have for the last month or so," La Russa said of Grandal. "We saw Seby in spring training. I saw him for the first time. He’s well known. He’ll do a good job.”

Zavala was hitting .178 with five homers and 15 RBIs for Charlotte. He played in five games with the White Sox in 2019 and was 1 for 12.

Grandal's absence adds to Chicago's injury woes. Second baseman Nick Madrigal is out for the season after hamstring surgery. Left fielder Eloy Jiménez has missed the entire season with a torn left pectoral tendon and center fielder Luis Robert played 25 games before a right hip flexor strain sent him to the injured list.

  LHP Santiago ejected, glove confiscated during Mariners' win CHICAGO (AP) — Just sweat and rosin. That is Hector Santiago’s story, and he’s sticking to it. Santiago became the first player to be ejected as part of Major League Baseball’s new foreign substance protocols when he was thrown out of the Seattle Mariners’ 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Taylor Trammell homered twice for Seattle in the resumption of Saturday's suspended game. The White Sox rebounded in the scheduled series finale, winning 7-5 behind Zack Collins' four RBIs. Santiago was checked by the umpires as he exited in the fifth inning of the first game. His glove was confiscated, and it was later announced that Santiago had been ejected.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Yasmani Grandal has been out of action since twisting his right knee running in drills Wednesday, and the White Sox catcher will not take part in either of the team’s first two Cactus League contests. “He's got a little inflammation in his knee ,” said manager Tony La Russa. “So, we're going to hold him out for a couple days, so it works itself out .” The switch-hitting Grandal is an integral part of the White Sox push toward a second straight postseason appearance, both at the plate and behind the plate. Zack Collins will start behind the plate for Sunday’s game against the Brewers at

Relievers Aaron Bummer, Evan Marshall and Jimmy Cordero, outfielder Adam Engel and infielder Jake Lamb are also on the injured list.

Jiménez and Robert have begun baseball-related activity. La Russa said Engel could return on Tuesday.

“It’s only as difficult as you allow it to be," La Russa said on the string of injuries. "We control our minds and our hearts. If we want to act frustrated and discouraged, like we’ve been unlucky, then we’re going to lose an edge. If we remind ourselves, you look around and Minnesota doesn’t have (Byron) Buxton. Everybody’s getting hurt. It’s how you handle it.”

Britain women's soccer team will take a knee at Olympics .
LONDON — The British women’s soccer team will take a knee before kickoff at the Tokyo Olympics. The players have been performing the anti-racism stance with their separate teams over the last year and the IOC relaxed its rules this month to allow Olympic athletes to make such gestures of protest in the field of play at the Tokyo Games. “It is the people that don’t have a voice that we are standing up for,” said Britain defender Demi Stokes, who has spoken previously about being racially abused. “We know we have a big part to play. It’s important we use our platforms to help in any way we can. “We want to show to everyone this is something serious. It’s still happening.
