Chicago White Sox's Tim Anderson reacts after hitting a solo home run in the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Aug. 20, 2020, in Chicago. “He did a really nice job of finishing his work for the day," White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. The White Sox wasted no time to jump on right-hander Spencer Turnbull (2-2), who walked three batters in a torturous 37-pitch first inning. White Sox: OF Luis Robert (sore right hand) could return to the lineup as early as Friday night, Renteria said. White Sox: LHP Dallas Keuchel (3-2, 3.07) will oppose the Cubs' Jon Lester (2-0, 2.74) in a duel of veteran left-handers on Friday night.

The decision by the White Sox to isolate Renteria comes amid concerns about the conronavirus spreading across the majors in the first week since the delayed season began. The White Sox have had at least three known positive coronavirus cases. Third baseman Yon Moncada tested positive during the team's intake process earlier this month and said he appreciated the team's efforts to thwart a possible spread.
