Chicago White Sox centerfielder Alejandro De Aza was hit in his right knee during a pickoff attempt at second base on Wednesday, which forced him to leave the game. The White Sox were off on Thursday, and De Aza says he'll be in the lineup when the team starts a series against the Seattle Mariners on Friday.
Alejandro De Aza's right knee was too sore for him to remain in Wednesday's game after getting hit by an errant pickoff throw at second base, but the White Sox center fielder insisted he would return to the starting lineup Friday night against the Mariners.
"Once you get a chance, you have to enjoy it," De Aza said.
