Kipnis had been dealing with right shoulder inflammation. He now returns to the lineup after posting a .200/.273/.300 slash line with two doubles and six strikeouts in 20 at-bats during his rehab stint.
Kipnis is starting at second base and batting sixth against Jose Quintana and the White Sox on Friday. He should move back into the No. 2 spot once he regains his form.
Calvin Pickard Elite Jersey With the gregarious Torre mic’d up for about 50 games during the 1982 season, there was plenty of material with which to work as the crew pried into this usually unseen world.

It takes you a little time to get used to it, but it really came down to trusting the people you work with. You buy in. That’s it, Torre said. That’s so against what I would ever allow to have happen, only because I just feel there’s so much inside baseball that you don’t want to share. But just the fact that it was in-house and they had their finger on the button, it was basically just something I trusted.
