Shortstop Tim Anderson is back in the Chicago White Sox starting lineup for their game against the host Cleveland Indians Tuesday night.

Anderson, 27, was forced to miss the nightcap of Monday’s doubleheader against Cleveland — a 3-1 White Sox loss — because of an allergy-induced headache. He was 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Chicago’s 8-6 win in eight innings in the opener.

In 41 games this season, Anderson is hitting .288 with five home runs and 17 RBIs. Anderson won the AL batting title in 2019 with a .335 average.

A first-round pick of the White Sox in 2013, Anderson has hit .281 with 79 home runs and 244 RBIs in 611 career major league games.
