White Sox: Alloy Jimenez (torn hamstring tendon) continues to have good results, manager Tony La Russa said, but he didn’t have a timeline for Jimenez to start a minor league rehab assignment. “Everyone believes his progress is really impressive,” La Russa said. “But there’s a certain buildup in muscle, and you can’t move that fast.” … RHP Lance Lynn (surgery on the right knee) could start facing the hitter after throwing at least one more bullpen, La Russa said. Lynn is expected to pitch in a game in early June.


LHP Nestor Cortes (1-1, 1.41 ERA) will start for the Yankees on Sunday. He made Rangers uncontrollable on Monday, scoring 11 runs in seven innings. RHP Michael Kopech (0-0, 0.93) will take the mound to Chicago in the series finale.
