The Chicago White Sox on Monday activated third baseman Yoan Moncada (oblique) and right-hander Joe Kelly (right biceps nerve issue) from the injured list.
Neither has played yet this season. Moncada is expected to make his debut Monday night against the Cleveland Guardians.
In corresponding moves, the White Sox placed LHP Aaron Bummer on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to May 7) with a right knee strain and optioned INF Jake Burger to Triple-A Charlotte.
Moncada hasn’t played since Chicago’s American League Division Series loss to Houston last year. He suffered a right oblique strain on the last day of spring training and landed on the injured list before excelling during a six-game rehab stint at Charlotte.
Moncada went 7-for-22 and hit two home runs for the Knights.
Moncada, 26, played in 144 games last season for Chicago, hitting .263 with a .375 on-base percentage, 14 home runs and 61 RBIs.
Kelly, 33, appeared in 48 games last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went 2-0 and struck out 50 in 44 innings and posted a 2.86 ERA.
Bummer, 28, is 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA in 12 appearances this season.
Burger, 26, is batting .239 with two home runs and seven RBI over 21 games this season.
