 width=>>White Sox Calling Up Rodon

The Chicago White Sox have promoted top pitching prospect Carlos Rodon from Triple-A Charlotte.

Rodon will initially work out of Chicago's bullpen. The No. 3 overall pick in last year's amateur draft went 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA in two starts with the Knights this season.

The White Sox also activated pitcher Jake Petricka from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's game against Cleveland. The reliever had been out with a right forearm strain.

The 26-year-old Petricka went 1-6 with a 2.96 ERA and 14 saves in 67 appearances last year. He led all major league rookies in saves and ranked third in IP (73.0) and appearances.

Pitcher Javy Guerra was placed on the DL with right shoulder inflammation. The move is retroactive to April 13.

In addition, pitcher Kyle Drabek was designated for assignment.

 width=>>Cardinals' Carpenter Player of the Week

St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter was named National League Player of the Week on Monday.

Carpenter batted .480 in six games last week with a home run, five RBI, seven doubles and a .480 on-base percentage.

His 22 total bases were an NL-best during the week.

>>Mets' d'Arnaud, Blevins Headed To DL

New York Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud and pitcher Jerry Blevins are headed to the 15-day disabled list after both players were injured Sunday.

The club announced Monday that the duo will be placed on the DL Tuesday before the Mets host the Atlanta Braves.

D'Arnaud suffered a fractured pinky finger on his right hand after being hit with a pitch in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Miami Marlins. Blevins was struck by a liner on Sunday and was diagnosed with a distal radius fracture in his left arm on Monday.

d'Arnaud was hitting .317 with two homers and 10 RBI before going down.

To replace the duo on the roster the Mets will recall relief pitcher Hansel Robles and catcher Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas. To make room on the 40-man roster for Robles, the Mets transferred pitcher Zack Wheeler to the 60- day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
