Philip Humber Injury Update: Rehab Start Pushed Back By Weather

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Philip Humber was scheduled to pitch a rehab start for the Double-A Birmingham Barons on Wednesday night, but the start has been pushed back due to inclement weather, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. Instead, according to Merkin, Humber will start the first game of doubleheader tomorrow at 5 p.m.

If all goes well with the rehab start, Humber should return to the White Sox early next week where he is expected to start vs. the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park. That start is likely to come on Tuesday.

Humber has been on the disabled list since June 17 with a strain of his right elbow flexor. He has a 6.01 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP on the season.
