KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chicago White Sox placed closer Bobby Jenks on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday and purchased right-hander D.J. Carrasco's contract from Triple-A Charlotte.
Jenks has bursitis near his left (non-pitching) shoulder. The move is retroactive to June 30.
The 27-year-old Jenks is 2-0 with a 1.95 ERA for the AL Central leaders and ranks ninth among AL relievers with 18 saves. He last pitched on June 29 and got the save as the White Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs.
Carrasco, 31, was 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA, one save and 23 strikeouts in seven games with Charlotte.
