The White Sox put outfielder Willy Garcia on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion and promoted his replacement.
Garcia was injured in Monday night’s game after colliding with second baseman Yoan Moncada in the outfield. The White Sox announced Tuesday that it purchased Nicky Delmonico’s contract from Class AAA Charlotte.
This is Delmonico’s first major-league call-up. He’s batting .262 with 18 doubles, three triples, 12 home runs and 45 RBI. The 6-3, 230-pound Delmonico, who bats left-handed, was named to the International League All-Star team and played in 73 games at third base, 13 in left field and three in right.
Delmonico is a career .257 hitter with 119 doubles, 61 homers, 248 RBI and 243 runs scored in 490 games over six minor-league seasons.
