There is no word yet regarding how this latest setback might affect Morel's return to Chicago. Orlando Hudson has been filling in for Morel at third base and is hitting just .188/.291/.271, though he did deliver a walk-off single against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Morel was hitting .177/.225/.195 before being sidelined by the back injury.

The White Sox welcome the Astros to town this weekend.
