Tigers Vs. White Sox: Alejandro De Aza Returns From DL For Sunday's Game

The Chicago White Sox have reinstated outfielder Alejandro De Aza from the 15-day disabled list prior to Sunday night's game against the Detroit Tigers, as Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports. De Aza has been out since Aug. 18 with a bruised rib cage.

De Aza was initially pulled out of Chicago's lineup last month with back soreness, but it was later revealed that De Aza's injury was actually near his rib area. He eventually was placed on the DL retroactive to Aug. 18, forcing the team to use the likes of Jordan Danks and DeWayne Wise.

The center fielder has spent the past few days with Triple-A Charlotte playing rehab games, but his reinstatement indicates that the team is prepared to bring him back into the fold. It's unclear whether he's playing Sunday night against the Tigers, but he'll at least be active and available to play.
