Jermaine Dye


Dye left the Chicago White Sox's game on Monday after being hit by a pitch in the calf by Kansas City Royals starter Mark Redman. Dye was 1-for-1 in the game. Manager Ozzie Guillen said he expects Dye to return on Wednesday.


Chicago's Dye was selected to his second All-Star team on Sunday, as a reserve outfielder for the American League. Dye is batting .311 with 20 homers and 57 RBIs this season.


Dye, who sat out Monday's win with a sore left calf, returned to the White Sox's lineup Tuesday but left in the third inning after reaggravating the injury. Chicago's right fielder is day-to-day. He walked in his only plate appearance in a 7-1 loss to Cleveland Tuesday.


Dye returned to the Chicago lineup on Sunday after missing two games with a strained left calf. The right fielder left Wednesday's loss to Cleveland with the injury but should be healed by now.


Dye left after the first inning of the White Sox's loss to Cleveland Wednesday with a left calf strain. The Chicago Tribune reports that Chicago's right fielder will received treatment on the calf Thursday before the team leaves for Kansas City to begin a six-game road trip. Dye's status for Friday night's game against the Royals is uncertain.


Dye singled three times and drew a walk in four trips Monday in Chicago's 10-4 opening day win over Cleveland. He also stole a base, scored a run and drove in one as part of his perfect day at the plate.


Dye, who had a two-out RBI single off closer Brad Lidge in the eighth inning of Wednesday's series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros, was named the 2005 World Series Most Valuable Player. The White Sox' veteran outfielder had at least one hit in each contest of the four-game sweep, finishing 7-for-16 with a double, home run, three RBI and three runs scored.


After missing the last four games with infected spider bites, Dye returned to the White Sox lineup Monday and delivered three hits, good for four RBI, in a 14-6 bludgeoning of the Royals.


Six infected spider bites have kept Dye out of the Chicago lineup for the first three games of the White Sox' current four-game homestand against Boston, and the outfielder's status for Sunday's series finale also is questionable. The infection required Dye to visit the hospital so the bites could be cleaned and treated. Dye is second on the team with 19 homers this season.


According to White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, Dye will be sidelined for a couple days, due to a bout with the flu. The veteran outfielder, who is batting .175 with three home runs and eight RBI in 21 games this season, was replaced in the lineup on Saturday by Timo Perez.

Consider Dye as day-to-day.


The White Sox were without Juan Uribe and Pablo Ozuna for Wednesday night's loss to Oakland, so Joe Crede started at shortstop. When Crede was ejected from the game, Dye moved to short for the final frame.

If a player needs to play only one game at a position to qualify for it in your fantasy league, Dye now is a shortstop option.
