Addison Reed enjoys first White Sox off day in 20 games
On May 10, the White Sox began a 33-game, 34-day bender. And after traveling from Minnesota to Los Angeles then back to Chicago, everyone knows that one-day buffer was coming… The cherished off day, in the middle of Chicago to Oakland then Seattle and back to Chicago.
"When it's all said and done, we're at the park 10 hours a day, 20 days in a row, then, an off day. It's going to be nice," White Sox closer Addison Reed said.
Per MLB rules, the White Sox's longest consecutive game streak is limited to 20 games. If a game is rescheduled from a postponement, the cap is 24 consecutive games (if the team is at home).
"Tomorrow, I have absolutely no plans," Reed said. "Don't set an alarm, wake up whenever my eyes open and just kind of go from there. You have to take full advantage of those off days."
And Reed needs his rest -- he has earned his 16th save in 17 chances on Tuesday against Boston.
