Anderson resumes suspension and plays Friday against the Twins.
White Sox shortstop told reporters after falling to Minnesota at the series opening: “I have to apologize for my actions, there are a lot of people who are really looking down on me. I take full responsibility for what I did. But it’s something I have to learn from and grow from.”
Anderson gave his finger to a fan while on the field on Wednesday, when it was a frustrating day, making three fouls in the first two rounds of the 11-1 loss to the Cleveland Guardians.
“Sometimes you will react differently. This was one of those moments when I reacted differently,” Anderson said. “But, like I said, I learned from him. I will go on and grow more. Just keep being me and shut it down again and keep learning.”
