Cooper rejoins White Sox after bout with vertigo

The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) -- Pitching coach Don Cooper is back with the Chicago White Sox after missing 11 games because of vertigo.

Cooper rejoined the team Friday as the White Sox opened a six-game homestand against the Minnesota Twins. He says he's still not 100 percent but is ''feeling better than I did, that's for sure.''

He says the symptoms are ''manageable now.''

Cooper missed time twice last season because of diverticulitis, and given a choice, he says he would ''go for the diverticulitis over the vertigo.''

Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen filled in for Cooper while he was out.
