White Sox place Lawrie on disabled list

CHICAGO -- Bothered by a tight left hamstring, White Sox second baseman Brett Lawrie was placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game at Wrigley Field.

Lawrie hasn't played since leaving a game on Thursday against the Tigers. Infielder Carlos Sanchez, who was removed from Triple-A Charlotte's game Tuesday night, was called up to replace Lawrie.

"It just seemed like he was going backwards today," manager Robin Ventura said of Lawrie on Tuesday. "There's no way you can go over there [to Wrigley] and play the National League rules with nobody on the bench."
