White Sox Option Santiago To Make Room For Liriano

(CBS) The White Sox optioned Hector Santiago to Triple-A Charlotte Monday to make room for newly acquired pitcher Francisco Liriano.

The move is a little surprising considering Santiago is 2-1 with a 3.66 ERA with 43 strikeouts in 32 appearances this season. The move shows the White Sox have a lot of faith in fellow left-hander Leyson Septimo.

Septimo has allowed four runs in 8.1 innings, but three of those runs came off one home run by Adrian Gonzalez in Boston.

The White Sox also announced that Liriano will wear uniform No. 58.
