CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox placed shortstop Tim Anderson on the 10-day disabled list for a left hamstring strain and reinstated outfielder Billy Hamilton after completing his rehab assignment with Triple A Charlotte.
Anderson, 28, has been in and out of the lineup for the past 10 days due to leg pain. The team was hoping to play the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday after the White Sox had the day off on Monday, but Anderson missed that game and will now take more time to recover. The measure is retroactive to August 29.
Anderson is averaging .302 / .331 / .458 this year. The White Sox are 13-11 when they haven’t been in the starting lineup this season. Luis Robert has been starting with Anderson out of the lineup.
The 30-year-old Hamilton has returned from an oblique strain after spending August on the disabled list.
The team also called up right-hander Matt Foster and outfielder Gavin Sheets, and selected infielder Romy Gonzalez’s contract. The White Sox selected Gonzalez in the 18th round in 2018. He is one of seven players in the minors to record 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases this season.
To make room for moves, the White Sox placed infielder Jake Lamb on assignment.
