CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago White Sox placed third baseman Joe Crede on the 15-day disabled list because of lower back inflammation on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old Crede has a history of back problems, and it's been a nagging issue all season. After deciding not to have offseason surgery to repair two herniated discs, he is hitting .216 with four homers and 22 RBIs - a steep drop from last year when he batted .283 with 30 homers and 94 RBIs.
The White Sox recalled third baseman Josh Fields from Triple-A Charlotte to replace Crede. A top prospect, Fields is batting .283 with 10 homers and 37 RBIs with Charlotte.
