He's not in tonight's lineup but this article suggests that he could be back soon.

By Nathaniel Whalen
Staff writer

CHICAGO — It's no sure thing, but there's a good chance White Sox designated hitter Jim Thome will return to the starting lineup for tonight's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Thome has been out since straining his left hamstring Wednesday, but showed considerable progress during a workout session Monday. He ran around the track and hit in the batting cages at U.S. Cellular Field, a Sox spokesman said.

Thome had previously said running would be the biggest obstacle to overcome since he could feel the hamstring tug when he lengthened his stride.

The left-handed hitter is fifth among Sox regulars with a .294 batting average, second on the team with 36 homers and third with 91 RBI.

Though the Sox are eager to have him in the lineup for their final 32 games, they are wary about hurrying the slugger back.

"I wish he'll be in the lineup (tonight), but I'm not going to rush him because we need him," Sox manager Ozzie Guillen told reporters Sunday. "He has to be a good percent to be in the field."

Even if he's back in the lineup soon I'm worried that this will bother him again. Hamstrings are a bitch.
