Team representatives spoke with Minoso Saturday, and the baseball great reportedly said he is "feeling fine."

Reifert says Minoso will likely remain at the hospital for more tests and is expected to be released Sunday.

The nine-time All-Star outfielder and Gold Glove winner made his debut at Comiskey Park in 1951. He spent 13 full seasons and part of four others in Major League Baseball until 1980.
