>>White Sox Garcia Activated From DL, Davidson To DL
The Chicago White Sox have activated All-Star outfielder Avisail Garcia and placed third baseman Matt Davidson on the 10-day disabled list because of a bruised right wrist.
The White Sox announced the moves before Tuesday's game against the AL West-leading Houston Astros.
A first-time All-Star, Garcia had been sidelined since July 25 because of a strained ligament in his right thumb. He was batting .303 with 13 home runs and 54 RBIs.
Davidson was hurt when he got hit by a pitch from Toronto's Marcus Stroman on Aug. 1. He has 22 home runs and 51 RBIs to go with a .238 average.
>>White Sox Lopez To Start Friday Against Kansas City
The White Sox plan to recall right-hander Reynaldo Lopez from Triple-A Charlotte and start him Friday against Kansas City.
General manager Rick Hahn said Lopez, part of the December trade that also netted prospect Lucas Giolito from Washington for Adam Eaton, will take Mike Pelfrey's spot in the rotation while the veteran works out of the bullpen.
Lopez, 23, is rated as the No. 59 prospect in baseball by MLB.com. He was 5-3 with a 4.91 ERA in six starts last season with the Nationals. Lopez is part of a youth movement that is highlighted by top prospect Moncada, who was called up on July 19.
