Shortstop of the year In a flurry of movements by the floundering baseball team, Tim Anderson returned to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.
The 10-day injury list was cleared for Anderson and infielder Hanser Alberto. Alberto is recovering from a strained left quad, while Anderson suffered a left knee sprain on April 10 at Minnesota.
Lenyn Sosa and Oscar Colás, two rookie infielders, were also optioned by Chicago to Triple-A Charlotte. One of the team’s best prospects, Colás, 24, hit.211 with a home run and seven RBIs in 25 games during his first taste of the big leagues.
From Charlotte, left-hander Sammy Peralta, outfielder Billy Hamilton, and veteran reliever Alex Colomé were all promoted. The utility player Romy Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day IL with right shoulder irritation, and reliever Joe Kelly was put on the paternity list.
Jake Diekman and Frank German, both relievers, were also designated for assignment by the White Sox. In 13 big league outings this year, lefty Diekman, who was acquired in a deal with Boston in August, is 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA.
Before coming back to defeat Tampa Bay 12-9 on Sunday, Chicago had lost 10 straight games. On Tuesday night, the White Sox and Twins will start their three-game series.
