For his day off, Addison Reed's only plan was to sleep in
On May 10, the White Sox began a stretch of 33 games in 34 days. After traveling from Minnesota to Los Angeles and back to Chicago, everyone on the team knew that the one-day buffer was coming -- the cherished off day, in the middle of a rigorous stretch.
"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," said White Sox closer Addison Reed.
Per MLB rules, the White Sox longest consecutive-game streak is limited to 20. If a game gets rescheduled due to postponement, the cap becomes 24 (if the team is at home).
"I have absolutely no plans," Reed said.
And Reed needs his rest - he earned his 16th save in 17 chances on Tuesday vs Boston.
"Don't set an alarm, wake up whenever my eyes open and just kind of go from there," he said. "You have to take full advantage of those off days."
