White Sox Call Up Tyler Danish As 26th Man, Place Dylan Covey On DL

(CBS) The White Sox have their 26th man and Game 2 starter for Friday’s doubleheader, calling up 23-year-old right-hander Tyler Danish for the day.

Danish will start the second game of the twinbill against the Tigers , a makeup for the Opening Day rainout at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox also placed right-hander Dylan Covey on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique and recalled right-hander Juan Minaya.

Danish is 1-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 23 strikeouts over eight starts and 45 2/3 innings this season with the Triple-A Charlotte Knights. He made his major league debut last June with the White Sox, allowing two earned runs in 1 2/3 innings.

Minaya is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA over 14 2/3 innings this season with Charlotte. He suffered a right abdominal strain in spring training.

Covey left Thursday’s start in the third inning with the oblique injury. He’s 0-4 with an 8.12 ERA this season.

The White Sox and Tigers open their four-game set Friday afternoon at 4:10 p.m. from Guaranteed Rate Field with the first of two games for the day. Veteran right-hander Mike Pelrey is set to start the first contest.
