Aaron Bummer (biceps) activated off 45-day injured list

The White Sox activated LHP Aaron Bummer (biceps) off the 45-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Bummer hasn't appeared in a game since August 7th as he was dealing with biceps and nerve issues in his throwing arm. The 27-year-old southpaw will function as a high-leverage bullpen arm during October.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria announced Monday that Aaron Bummer is dealing with a nerve issue near his left biceps.

Fantasy Impact

Bummer has been on the injured list with a biceps strain but this is considered a new issue. There's a chance we don't see the lefty reliever for the rest of the season.

Aaron Bummer (biceps) is ‘doing better’

Aaron Bummer biceps are “ loosening up,” but is not scheduled for a throwing program, said White Sox manager Rick Renteria.

Aaron Bummer (biceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Bummer exited Friday’s game early due to a left biceps strain and was placed on the injured list Saturday. He owns a 1.23 ERA across seven 1/3 innings this season. Look for Steve Cishek to see an increased role out of the bullpen with Bummer sidelined.

Aaron Bummer pitches well on Sunday

Aaron Bummer struck out one and gave up a hit over 1 2/3 scoreless innings against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Bummer has had a tough month of September, watching his ERA for the month balloon over 9.00. He has not been the same pitcher he was earlier in the season, and has a lot of work to do. This was a great chance for him to showcase his talents, but he'll have to wait until Spring Training to begin fighting for a roster spot in 2019.
