Bobby Jenks out "at least a few games and possibly more" with forearm tightness

Chicago’s bullpen may never be at full strength.
Last week the White Sox welcomed Matt Thornton back from the disabled list and today they activated J.J. Putz off the shelf, but now Bobby Jenks has a strained forearm and Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.com reports that he’ll be unavailable for “at least a few games and possibly more.”
“Well, there’s something going on,” pitching coach Don Cooper told Padilla. “We are not sure what it is. He tried to throw last night and didn’t feel too good.”
Last month Jenks threw three innings in a game for the first time since 2005 after previously being limited to one-inning appearances all season, but when asked about that possibly being a factor manager Ozzie Guillen replied: “I can’t say we overused him, he wanted to be out there for the team.”
