If you think this story sounds familiar, you’re right. The Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley reports for the 2nd time in 5 weeks, the White Sox have somehow managed to “misplace” rehabbbing righty Bartolo Colon.

“Right now, I don’t see it,” manager Ozzie Guillen first replied on Thursday, when asked if he thought Colon could help again this season. “Hopefully, he is, not late in September. But right now, we’ve got to wait another, what, 12 days to see exactly what it is. Then he’s got to go to another rehab assignment.”

Guillen was then asked where Colon has been, and started to laugh.

“No, he’s not here,” Guillen said. “[Where?] … that’s the hardest question you ask me, where is Colon? I think I don’t see him pitching here in the next 20 days because he’s got to go to a rehab assignments, start over with a pitching thing and we’ll see what happens.”
