Scott Downs' future with the White Sox is uncertain. The 38-year-old reliever, who walked the only batter he faced in a 5-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, was seen hugging teammates after Wednesday's game. One teammate told Downs, "happy trails."
Downs signed with the White Sox in January for $4.25 million to be a lefty specialist and a veteran leader in the clubhouse.
In 38 appearances he was 0-4 with a 6.08 ERA. He allowed 24 hits and walked 15 in 23 2/3 innings.
A White Sox team official said no announcement would be made Wednesday.
