The Chicago White Sox placed left-hander Aaron Bummer and right-hander Evan Marshall on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, while left-hander Jace Fry and right-hander Michael Kopech were added to the active roster.

Bummer’s move to the IL is retroactive to Monday with a strained right hamstring, while Marshall has a strained right flexor pronator.

Bummer, 27, was 1-4 with a 3.26 ERA in 32 relief appearances this season and is 3-8 with a 3.02 ERA in 166 relief appearances over five seasons in Chicago.

Marshall, 31, was 0-2 with a 5.60 ERA in 27 appearances and is 10-12 lifetime with a 4.19 ERA in 206 relief appearances over eight seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Seattle Mariners, Cleveland Indians and White Sox.

Fry, 27, was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte where he had a 1.93 ERA in 13 relief appearances. In four major league seasons, all with the White Sox, he has a 4.75 ERA in 156 appearances (one start).

Kopech, 25, last pitched May 26 and has been on the injured list with a strained left hamstring. He had a 1.72 ERA in 14 appearances (three starts) earlier this season. Kopech, who opted out of the 2020 season, is 3-1 with a 2.76 ERA in 18 career appearances (seven starts).
