White Sox relief pitcher placed on 10-day disabled list while the team comes up with a win in game one of a resumed game from Monday afternoon.

On Tuesday, the Chicago White Sox announced that right-handed relief pitcher Ryan Burr was placed on the 10-day disabled list. Burr is dealing with a right elbow capsule strain according to MLB Trade Rumors.

With Burr being placed on the injured list, the White Sox recalled Jose Ruiz from Triple-A Charlotte. The injury for Burr is unfortunate as he’s been one of the solid relief pitchers in a strong bullpen for the White Sox this season.

Through 16 relief appearances for the Sox this season, Burr has a 4.58 ERA with 20 strikeouts and a 1.27 WHIP. Burr is having a much better year than he did in his first season with the Sox. Hopefully, he can return when he’s eligible to come off the injured list.

The Sox didn’t need Burr in their win over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday. After their game on Monday was suspended with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning due to rain, the Sox and Royals resumed play on Tuesday afternoon. The game was tied 1-1 when play was suspended.

However, the Sox bullpen held the Royals to just one hit when play resumed. Aaron BummerEvan Marshall and Alex Colome pitched four scoreless innings in their resumed game. This gave the Sox a chance to win the game with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.

Yolmer Sanchez, who drove in the Sox lone run on Monday before play was suspended, came through with a walk-off single to help the home team to victory. The win gave improved the Sox record to 24-29 just before their second game of Tuesday night.
