The Chicago White Sox have officially activated infielder Tyler Saladino and right-handed starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez from their 10-day disabled list, the club announced on Friday afternoon. However, the White Sox will not be forced to make any corresponding roster moves as the club had several available roster spots on their current active 25-man slate.
With the American League Central ball club previously outrighting another right-hander in Michael Ynoa down to Triple-A Charlotte during to the All-Star break, the White Sox also traded left-handed starting pitcher Jose Quintana to the crosstown rival Chicago Cubs on Thursday.
The 28-year-old infielder in Saladino has already made 30 regular-season appearances for the White Sox thus far into the 2017 campaign. Over the course of 110 at-bats in what has become his third season in the “Windy City,” the up-and-comer is currently batting an even .200 with four RBIs and a .302 on-base percentage.
For his big league career, Saladino is now batting .247 with 12 home runs and 62 RBIs to coincide with a .295 on-base percentage.
On the other hand, the 33-year-old Gonzalez is in the midst of his second season as a member of the White Sox and sixth big league campaign overall. Over the course of his 13 regular-season starts for the White Sox this time around, Gonzalez has produced what would become a single-season career-high 5.15 ERA in addition to a 4-8 record. The former Baltimore Orioles right-hander has also managed to register 45 strikeouts against 26 walks across 78.2 innings of work in all.
