Luis Robert (leg) absent from lineup Thursday

Luis Robert is not in the White Sox lineup Thursday against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Robert left Wednesday’s game early due to leg soreness. He is considered day-to-day according to manager Tony La Russa. The hope he is he’ll be able to return to the lineup at some point this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: This is another positive sign for Suzuki’s rehab as he will start working in the cage in Arizona. If all goes well he could be ready for a rehab assignment starting sometime early next week. He has been on the injured list since May 27 with a left ring finger sprain.

Fantasy Impact: France injured his arm trying to catch a throw at first base from Abraham Toro who threw the ball into the first base line. Dylan Moore took over at first base for France, who was posting an All-Star type of campaign hitting .316 at the plate with 10 home runs and 45 RBIs. The Mariners will likely have more information out on France soon.

Byron Buxton will most likely avoid IL

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli told reporters before Thursday’s game that he does not expect Byron Buxton to go on the IL for his sore right knee. (Source: Do-Hyoung Park on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy managers should make themselves comfortable as they wait for the return of the 28-year-old outfielder. Baldelli seemed optimistic that Buxton could rejoin the lineup on Friday or Saturday when the Twins host the Rockies, but fantasy managers shouldn’t count on that happening. It is best to have a backup plan heading into the weekend.
