Chicago White Sox outfielder Charlie Tilson will be shut down from impact activities for the next 10 days as he deals with a stress reaction in his right foot.

An MRI exam on Saturday revealed the injury for Tilson, who is aiming to return from a torn left hamstring that occurred in his lone game with the White Sox last season.

"Certainly I guess you could say I'm disappointed, but it's a very minor setback and it's part of the process," the 24-year-old Tilson said. "I had a major repair, and these things come up, and hopefully we can minimize them as much as we can, and hopefully this is the last one. I'm just going to deal with it and do whatever I can to move forward.

"It's certainly something I'm aware of, my right leg early on in the process of recovering was bearing a lot of weight. As much as I try to stay even and that's a lot of what the rehab is, unfortunately something like this came up. Fortunately we were very proactive about it."

Tilson, who is bidding to be Chicago's starting center fielder this season, was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in a trade deadline deal for left-hander Zach Duke in July. Tilson, however, saw his season come to an end on Aug. 2 after attempting to run down a blast from Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera.
