Matt Lindstrom to undergo ankle surgery

Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Matt Lindstrom is headed for ankle surgery.

Manager Robin Ventura broke the news on Wednesday but did not clarify whether the team expected the 34-year-old right hander to return or not.

Lindstrom injured his ankle on Monday evening when he attempted to field a bunt.

Prior to going down Lindstrom had been working the ninth inning for the White Sox picking up six saves. In 19 games this season he compiled a 3.32 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Expect more details on Thursday.
