The White Sox called up right handers Tyler Danish and Juan Minaya. They also placed Dylan Covey on the 10-day disabled list.
The Chicago White Sox made some roster moves on Friday, having to do with their pitching. The team called up right handers Tyler Danish and Juan Minaya. They also placed Dylan Covey on the 10-day disabled list. Covey left his start against Arizona on Tuesday after suffering a strained oblique.
These roster moves leave the White Sox with nine relievers and three bench players. However, Danish was called up to start the second-game of Friday’s double header but game one was postponed. Mike Pelfrey got the start in the night tilt.

Minaya saw some action earlier this season at the big-league level. In 11 appearances he was 1-0 with a 4.25 ERA. Because of the rainout, fans will have to wait until Saturday to see Danish’s debut in the rotation. He will get the start, along with Derek Holland in new double header to make up for Friday.
It will be interesting to see how Danish fairs. He was up with the team last season but was demoted to Triple-A Charlotte after posting a 10.80 ERA in three appearances. He only pitched 1 2/3 innings and allowed two runs. Opponents hit 667 against Danish, as he surrendered six hits in those appearances.
The pitching rotation has been plagued by injuries this season and a lack of consistency. Prior to injury, Covey was 0-4 with an 8.12 ERA. That won’t get the job done. James Shields on the other hand was 1-0 with a 1.62 ERA before his injury and Carlos Rodon has yet to debut. With this team searching for answers, it helps to give some of their younger guys a chance.
