Dylan Covey (shoulder) scratched from Wednesday start, Ivan Nova now opening for White Sox

Chicago White Sox pitcher Dylan Covey has been scratched from a scheduled start Wednesday versus the Minnesota Twins due to right shoulder soreness.

What It Means:

It looks like the injury will keep Covey out for the remainder of the season. He made 12 starts and six relief appearances this season, earning a 1-8 record. Ivan Nova will throw an inning as the White Sox's opener Wednesday before letting the bullpen take over.

The 28-year-old right-hander posted a 7.98 ERA and 1.76 WHIP with 41 strikeouts and 28 walks over 58 2/3 innings this season.
