Chicago also recalled infielder Andy Gonzalez from Triple-A Charlotte and right-handed reliever Dewon Day from Double-A Birmingham.
Ozuna had surgery to repair the ligament Monday morning at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He is expected to begin rehabilitation in three weeks and be out about three months.
Ozuna injured himself rounding first base on a double during the first inning of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. The 32-year-old was hitting .244 in 27 games. Gonzalez was hitting .242 in 35 games with Charlotte. The 25-year-old has appeared in two games in separate stints with the White Sox this season, going 0-for-2.
Day replaces left-hander Andrew Sisco, who was optioned to Charlotte after Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Sisco gave up three runs in one inning and was 0-1 with an 8.36 ERA in 19 relief appearances this season.
Day has struck out 48 in 20 relief appearances with Birmingham this season. The 26-year-old has a 2-3 record and a 3.60 ERA with three saves.
