The Chicago White Sox have recalled second baseman Carlos Sanchez to the MLB roster from Triple-A Charlotte.

Daryl Van Schowen of the Chicago Sun-Times tweeted the news:

Sanchez fills the roster spot left empty when the White Sox optioned pitcher Andre Rienzo to the Triple-A roster after Saturday’s 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.

This season, in 89 games at Charlotte, Sanchez is batting .291 with five home runs, 42 RBIs and 12 steals.

He has 102 hits, including 13 doubles and six triples. Add in his home runs and he’s collected 24 extra base hits. The on-base percentage for Sanchez is .352 with a .405 slugging percentage.

In his past 10 games Sanchez is batting .256 with 11 hits in 43 at-bats.

Sanchez in spring training for the White Sox batted .538 in nine games (13 at-bats).

This is the first time he’s been called up to the Majors.
