MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Chicago White Sox have placed right-hander Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
The White Sox made the move Thursday before starting a series against the Minnesota Twins.
The 27-year-old Putnam is one of several pitchers to take a crack at the closer role for the White Sox this season after Addison Reed was traded before the year started. Putnam is 3-2 with a 2.35 ERA and three saves in 42 appearances this season.
The White Sox recalled right-hander Andre Rienzo to take Putnam's place on the roster. Rienzo went 4-5 with a 5.87 ERA in 14 appearances, 11 of them starts, before being sent down to Triple-A Charlotte. He went 1-2 with a 3.60 ERA with Charlotte.
