White Sox farmhand Matt Tuiasosopo has had four different Major League stints in his 12-year career, but he hasn't played in the big leagues since 2013.
Friday night, he made an excellent case for his next callup, going 3-for-4 with three home runs and seven RBIs, both career highs. Tuiasosopo -- the younger brother of former Oakland Raiders quarterback Marques and Philadelphia Eagles fullback Zach -- helped Triple-A Charlotte to a 9-5 win over Rochester and has hit in five of his past six contests.
The Mariners drafted him out of high school in 2004 and he made his Major League debut in 2008, hitting .159 in 14 games. The outfielder also spent time with the Mets, Blue Jays and Tigers organizations before landing with the White Sox in a trade last summer.
This season, he's hitting .247/.354/.488 with 19 doubles, 16 homers (a new career high) and 46 RBIs for the Knights.
