White Sox place Jake Petricka on disabled list; recall Tommy Kahnle from Class AAA Charlotte
Prior to today's series finale vs. Detroit, the Chicago White Sox placed right-handed pitcher Jake Petricka on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 5) with a strained right lat and recalled right-hander Tommy Kahnle from Class AAA Charlotte.
Petricka, 28, threw 1.0 scoreless IP on Tuesday in the White Sox season opener. He was limited to nine appearances with the Sox in 2016 after undergoing surgery to repair a labral tear in his right hip.
Kahnle, 27, was 0-1 with a 2.63 ERA (8 ER/27.1 IP) and 25 strikeouts in 29 appearances last season, his first in the White Sox organization.
