The home run Humber allowed on Friday was to former Twins pest Lew Ford, who owns an .839 OPS at U.S. Cellular Field but hasn't played in the majors since 2007.
Humber will likely need at least one more minor-league start before re-joining the White Sox. In 12 starts prior to going on the DL, Humber had a 6.01 ERA with 31 walks, 63 strikeouts and 12 home runs allowed in 67 13 innings.
