Leyson Septimo (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday night at Triple-A Charlotte.

Septimo has been sidelined since the second week of spring training with a strained left shoulder. If all goes well, he could join the White Sox in mid-June.

White Sox transferred LHP Leyson Septimo from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Septimo has been out all season with a left shoulder strain. He's begun a rehab assignment but now will not be eligible to return until May 22.

Leyson Septimo (shoulder) has been assigned to Triple-A Charlotte to begin his rehab assignment.

Septimo hasn't pitched since March 7 due to a strained left shoulder. The 27-year-old lefty is out of minor league options, so the White Sox will have to find room for him on the major league roster once his rehab assignment is up, or risk exposing him to waivers. He posted a 5.02 ERA and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings with the White Sox in 2012.

White Sox placed LHP Leyson Septimo on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a left shoulder strain.

Septimo hasn't pitched since March 7 due to the injury. The 27-year-old left-hander is out of options this spring, so the injury conveniently delays a potential tough roster decision.

Leyson Septimo (arm) is scheduled to throw Wednesday.

Septimo hasn't pitched since Thursday due to an apparent arm injury, but the White Sox haven't disclosed the full extent of his symptoms. But that he's already throwing is an indication that it's not all that serious.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 11:45:00 AM

Leyson Septimo won't throw again until Monday due to an undisclosed injury.

Septimo left Thursday's Cactus League game with an apparent arm injury, but the White Sox haven't elaborated on his condition. However, that he's slated to throw again on Monday means that it's probably not a major concern.

Leyson Septimo left Thursday's Cactus League appearance with an arm injury.

Septimo exited with the trainer with two outs in the ninth after serving up a two-run homer earlier in the inning. White Sox manager Robin Ventura said that the left-hander was complaining about his arm, but he didn't offer more than that. Consider him out indefinitely for now.

White Sox activated LHP Leyson Septimo from the 15-day disabled list.

Septimo missed just over the minimum on the DL with a left biceps injury. He'll provide left-handed bullpen depth behind Phil Coke and Darin Downs.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 03:19:00 PM

White Sox placed LHP Leyson Septimo on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with left biceps inflammation.

It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Septimo has been dominant at Triple-A this year but hasn't been able to find the same success in his short time with the Sox. He's replaced in the pen by Hector Santiago.
Fri, Aug 17, 2012 02:11:00 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of LHP Leyson Septimo from Triple-A Charlotte.

Septimo will fill the lefty specialist role left vacant by Will Ohman's departure. The 26-year-old Dominican was sporting a 1.48 ERA in 30 1/3 innings at Triple-A.
Thu, Jun 28, 2012 02:12:00 PM

Leyson Septimo was knocked around yet again, this time for five runs in only one inning of work on Monday.

The perennial minor leaguer has looked pretty bad this spring, particularly over his last five appearances (13 earned runs in 3 2/3 innings). His overall ERA is 15.95 through 7 1/3 frames. It is safe to say that the Leyson Septimo experiment is over.
Tue, Apr 3, 2012 05:11:00 AM

White Sox signed LHP Leyson Septimo to a minor league contract.

Septimo, 26, became a free agent after being outrighted off Chicago's 40-man roster last month. The hard-throwing left-hander posted an underwhelming 5.30 ERA and 60/41 K/BB ratio over 56 innings at the Double-A level this season between the White Sox and Diamondbacks organizations.
Wed, Nov 16, 2011 12:35:00 PM

White Sox sent LHP Leyson Septimo outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

A former outfielder, Septimo put up less than impressive numbers at the Double-A level this season in the White Sox and Diamondbacks organizations. The 26-year-old doesn't look ready to contribute at the big league level.
Fri, Oct 14, 2011 04:04:00 PM

White Sox claimed LHP Leyson Septimo off waivers from the Diamondbacks; optioned him to Double-A Birmingham.

Septimo, a former outfielder, has a 5.79 ERA over parts of four seasons in the minor leagues, averaging 10.0 K/9 and 8.1 BB/9. The 25-year-old southpaw had an ugly 6.37 ERA and 22/25 K/BB ratio over his first 29 2/3 innings with Double-A Mobile. The hard-thrower has pitched exclusively in relief over the past two seasons and looks nowhere close to making an impact in the majors.
