Ramos has been out of action since May 15 with a left quad strain, but will return to his starting role at third base. The No. 5 White Sox prospect, per MLB Pipeline, is hitting .281 with two doubles, two RBIs and four runs scored in 10 Major League games.

10-DAY/15-DAY INJURED LIST

RHP (right elbow inflammation)
Expected return:
Early June
While Leone has a little inflammation in his right elbow, this absence is not expected to be an extended one for the reliever.

"Everything came back clean and clear," White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said. "He should be ready to go as soon as his IL date comes back. It's not something he's worried about." (Last updated: May 24)

DH (left hamstring strain)
Expected return:
Four to six weeks
The White Sox were waiting to return to Chicago before determining how long Jiménez is expected to be sidelined, though manager Pedro Grifol said it would be an "extended period" on May 23. The 27-year-old Jiménez landed on the IL for the second time this season, as he injured his hamstring running from second to home on a single from Corey Julks in the win over the Blue Jays on May 21.

OF (right hip flexor strain)
Expected return: Late May/Early June
Robert Jr. homered in his rehab debut with the Rookie-level Arizona Complex League team on Wednesday and will go out to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday after playing a couple more games in Arizona. He'll play for the Knights starting Tuesday and could rejoin the White Sox by next weekend in Milwaukee if all goes well, or at Wrigley Field on June 4-5. (Last updated: May 23)

RHP (back strain)
Expected return:
Early or mid June
Wilson experienced back spasms and wasn't available for the first two games against the Blue Jays on May 20-21. He was placed on the IL on May 22, retroactive to May 20. The 29-year-old Wilson owns a 2.84 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 19 innings this season. (Last updated: May 22)

60-DAY INJURED LIST

LHP (left shoulder surgery)
Expected return: TBD
After three outings with the Rookie-level ACL White Sox, Drohan will continue his rehab assignment with High-A Winston Salem, the White Sox announced on May 21. The Rule 5 selection, who was taken in the Major League phase of the Draft, had what manager Pedro Grifol described as a nerve decompression. The plan was to have the southpaw start a throwing program right after the end of Spring Training. He was placed on the 60-day IL prior to Opening Day on March 28.

In three outings between May 10-17, Drohan allowed three earned runs with nine strikeouts and two walks over 3 2/3 innings. (Last updated: May 21)

3B (left adductor strain)
Expected return: Shortly after the All-Star break
While running to first on a ground ball in the top of the second inning on April 9, Moncada doubled over in pain and had to be helped off the field. A day later, he was placed on the injured list with a left adductor strain.

The estimated original recovery time for Moncada was three to six months, the team announced on April 10, but general manager Chris Getz gave a more optimistic return update on April 12. Moncada has hit .282 with three doubles and a triple in 11 games.

"He starts hitting left-handed today," said White Sox manager Pedro Grifol of Moncada on May 13. "He spent the whole week hitting right-handed. I’ve seen videos of him catching some ground balls and doing some drills. He’s coming along. He’s a little further behind [Luis] Robert [Jr.], but he’s also coming along good.” (Last updated: May 13)

C (left hip inflammation)
Expected return: TBD
Stassi, who was transferred to the 60-day IL on April 15, suffered a setback during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte when he was hit in the hand on a hitter's backswing. So, Stassi will need to recover from that, along with his left hip inflammation.

"It's not significant in regards to a fracture, but it slowed it down a little bit," general manager Chris Getz said. "We want to get him to the point where he can catch back-to-back games and his body's recovering before we bring him back.” (Last update: April 15)

RHP (right rotator cuff strain)
Expected return: TBD
Lambert visited Dr. Neal ElAttrache during Spring Training for a second opinion on his shoulder and was able to avoid surgery. He said something was there, but they had a program in place to try to treat it. He was placed on the 60-day IL on March 28. (Last updated: March 28)

RHP (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return: Early to mid-2025
Scholtens was scheduled to undergo surgery to repair a torn ulnar cruciate ligament in his right elbow on March 1 and is expected to miss the season.

He was placed on the 60-day IL on Feb. 27 to make room for Bailey Horn, acquired from the Cubs. Scholtens was 1-9 with a 5.29 ERA in 26 appearances (11 starts) last season. (Last updated: Feb. 27)
