The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Jake Lamb on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained right quadriceps.

Lamb’s designation, retroactive to Monday, was one of four moves made by the American League Central leaders ahead of Tuesday night’s game against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

The White Sox also optioned outfielder Luis Gonzalez to Triple-A Charlotte, recalled first baseman Gavin Sheets from Charlotte and reinstated outfielder Billy Hamilton from the 10-day injured list.

Lamb, 30, is batting .224 with five home runs and 10 RBIs in 31 games this season, his first with the White Sox.

Gonzalez, 25, was 2-for-8 with two doubles in six games with Chicago. He tallied his first career hit on June 23 at Pittsburgh.

Sheets, 25, was with the White Sox from June 3-4 but has yet to appear in a major league game. He is the son of former big-leaguer Larry Sheets and is hitting .292 with seven homers and 33 RBIs in 41 games at Charlotte.

Hamilton, 30, went on the IL on June 6 with a strained right oblique. He is hitting .217 with two homers, 10 RBIs and five steals in 36 games this season.
