Brent Morel Injury: White Sox 3B Hopeful For Return At Start Of 2nd Half

Chicago White Sox third baseman Brent Morel is still rehabbing a back injury that's kept him out of action with the Sox for weeks. His goal now is to return for the start of the second half of the regular season.

After visiting a back specialist last week in Southern California, Morel said he was placed on a program for four to five weeks. He said he could incorporate baseball work during the latter stages of the program if he makes progress.

"It's a program for my glutes and core area, essentially to take pressure off my back," Morel said.

Morel, who has not played for the White Sox since mid-May, pulled himself out of a rehab start in Charlotte on June 7 because of back pain.
