 TORONTO (AP) -The Chicago White Sox put outfielder Darin Erstad on the 15-day disabled list Friday and recalled outfielder Jerry Owens from Triple-A Charlotte.
Erstad sprained his left ankle when he fell awkwardly after swinging and missing on a Roy Halladay fastball in the seventh inning of Thursday's 2-0 loss to Toronto. X-rays were negative.
``It's nothing really serious,'' manager Ozzie Guillen said. ``It could have been worse. The bone is clean, nothing broke.''
Owens got the nod over Ryan Sweeney because the White Sox wanted someone who could hit in the leadoff spot. Owens started Friday's game in center and batted leadoff.
Owens, 26, hit .305 with two home runs and 16 RBIs in 48 games at Charlotte. He was tied for the International League lead with 36 runs and second in steals with 23.
Owens, a left-handed batter, appeared in 12 games for the White Sox in 2006. Guillen said he will get the majority of the playing time in Erstad's absence, but right-handed batter Rob Mackowiak could start against left-handed pitchers.
Chicago already has two outfielders on the DL. Scott Podsednik has been out since April 16 with a strained right abductor and Pablo Ozuna suffered a fractured right fibula on May 28.
Podsednik is due to undergo an MRI when the White Sox return to Chicago next Monday and could soon begin a minor league rehab assignment. Ozuna is expected to be out for at least three months.
