CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Scott Podsednik on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of a strained left ribcage muscle, leaving the team without its leadoff hitter.
The injury occurred Sunday while batting in the first inning at Kansas City, and it came less than two weeks after Podsednik returned from a two-month stint on the DL with a strained adductor muscle.
The White Sox recalled outfielder Jerry Owens from Triple-A Charlotte to replace Podsednik. Owens batted .170 in 15 games for Chicago last month.
Losing Podsednik, batting .269 with 13 runs scored and four steals in 19 games, is another blow for an outfield that has seen Darin Erstad go on the DL twice because of a bad ankle. Right fielder Jermaine Dye returned Monday after missing nine games with a sore quad muscle.
