White Sox place Michael Ynoa on DL, recall Brad Goldberg


The White Sox announced on Saturday they have placed pitcher Michael Ynoa on the 10-day disabled list and recalled reliever Brad Goldberg from Triple-A Charlotte.

Ynoa left Friday's game against the Detroit Tigers with a right hip flexor strain.

The 25-year-old Ynoa is 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 16 games with the White Sox this season.

Goldberg, 27, has appeared in 17 games with the Charlotte Knights in 2017 and has registered a 2-1 record with a 1.99 ERA and 22 strikeouts.

Goldberg, originally drafted by the White Sox in 2013 out of Ohio State, has no major-league experience.

The White Sox will look to get back on track and put an end to a three-game losing streak when they continue their series against the Tigers at 2:30 p.m. on CSN.

The White Sox turned Comerica Park into a Home Run Derby in Saturday's win

The White Sox turned Comerica Park into a Home Run Derby in Saturday's win

Chicks dug the White Sox on Saturday.

The South Siders hit four home runs in their 8-3 dismantling of the Tigers at Comerica Park. Tim Anderson stayed red-hot with a pair of long balls, Jose Abreu went deep in addition to his pair of doubles, and Daniel Palka made some interesting history with his long ball (see below).

We'll let our stat guru Chris Kamka take it from here.

Since their 10-29 start the White Sox are a respectable 6-4. Days at the plate like Saturday sure help.

Charlie Tilson plays in Detroit for first time since getting injured in his MLB debut

Charlie Tilson plays in Detroit for first time since getting injured in his MLB debut

For over two years, Charlie Tilson was starting to look like his own version of "Moonlight" Graham, the player made famous in the movie "Field of Dreams" because he played in one major league game and never got to bat.

The White Sox traded for Tilson just before the trade deadline passed in 2016. Two days later he made his big league debut with the White Sox in Detroit. He got a single in his first at-bat, but left the game with an injury and missed the rest of the season. Tilson also missed all of the 2017 season and his MLB future was starting to come into question.

Back healthy, Tilson started this season in Triple-A Charlotte and hit .248 in 39 games when he got called up to replace Leury Garcia, who was placed on the disabled list. On Thursday, Tilson returned to a big league field for the first time in more than 20 months. He went 0-for-3 in a loss to Baltimore.

Friday marked a return to the site of Tilson's big league debut and the injury that made it such a brief stint. Tilson has now played three big league games, over the course of nearly 21 months, and two of them have been in Detroit.

Tilson went 1-for-4, meaning both his hits are in Comerica Park. The White Sox lost 5-4 after giving up three runs in the bottom of the eighth.
