The White Sox have had a busy lunch time of transactions to start this week.  Last night, the Sox optioned Tommy Kahnle back to Charlotte.  They followed that up today with the following:

  • Recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez
  • Designated catcher Hector Sanchez for assignment
  • Activated Alex Avila from the 15-day DL

Since last we saw Miguel Gonzalez, he's had two starts and has pitched six innings. His first start back was limited to two batters when the second at-bat ended like this.

Miguel Gonzalez

In his second start, he gave up eight hits, walked two, and struck out seven in 5⅔ innings.

Alex Avila went on the DL on April 24 with a right hamstring strain.  He spent this past weekend rehabbing at Charlotte.  In three games, he went 0-for-8 with three walks and three strikeouts.

We barely got to know Hector Sanchez.  He played in two for the Sox and went an uneventful 1-for-7 with a walk.  While a DFA can be pretty final, this move is likely just to get him off the 40-man roster and back to Charlotte.

With these moves, the 40-man roster is back to 38.
