Humber not feeling pain after rehab start
CHICAGO -- Injured starter Philip Humber was back in the White Sox clubhouse prior to Tuesday night's home game against the Rangers and talked about his first rehab start on Sunday at Triple-A Charlotte.

Humber, a right-hander who's been out since June 17 with an elbow flexor strain, allowed two runs and three hits in 2 1/3 innings, but said the pain from his injury wasn't noticeable.

"I'm working hard and trying to maintain a positive attitude," Humber said. "It's a flexor tendon. It's where that burn is. I haven't felt it, so, knock on wood, it's gone and we're moving up from here."

Humber, who's expects to make at least one more Minor League start before being activated for the second half of the season after the All-Star break, was pleased overall with his first time back on the mound.

"(My curveball) was OK," Humber said. "I didn't throw many of them. Just focused on fastball-changeup. Decent. I walked the first batter, of course. After that, it was pretty good. I got fatigued in the third inning, but was OK."
