CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago White Sox reinstated third baseman Joe Crede from the 60-day disabled list Friday after he missed most of the season with a back injury.
Coming off a career year in 2006, Crede batted .216 with four home runs and 22 RBIs in 47 games this season. He was placed on the disabled list June 6 with lower back inflammation and underwent surgery on June 12. It was a sharp decline from 2006, when Crede batted .283 with 30 homers and 94 RBIs.
The White Sox also reinstated infielder Pablo Ozuna from the 60-day DL and outrighted right-handed reliever Ryan Bukvich to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.
Ozuna hit .244 in 27 games before breaking his right fibula and tearing a deltoid ligament in his right ankle against Tampa Bay on May 27. He underwent season-ending surgery two days later.
Bukvich, who signed as a free agent last November, was 1-0 with a 5.05 ERA in 45 relief appearances. He will become a free agent.
