The Chicago White Sox reinstated left-hander Garrett Crochet from the injured list prior to Friday’s series opener at Kansas City.
The 21-year-old reliever was placed on the IL on April 29 (retroactive to April 26) with an upper back strain.
Chicago’s first-round pick (11th overall) in the 2020 draft, Crochet is 0-2 with a 1.00 ERA, eight strikeouts and five walks in eight appearances this season.
In a corresponding move, the White Sox optioned right-hander Alex McRae to Triple-A Charlotte.
McRae, 28, made his season debut Tuesday night at Cincinnati and pitched a scoreless inning with one walk and one strikeout.
