White Sox right-hander Jake Petricka returned to the disabled list Thursday with a right elbow strain. The Sox made the announcement following Petricka’s rough outing Wednesday night in which he gave up five runs in the sixth inning of the Sox’ 12-3 loss to the Yankees at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Petricka, who entered with the Sox trailing 3-2, was ejected from the game when he had words with umpire Hunter Wendelstedt after the inning. Manager Rick Renteria had been ejected during the inning, in which Petricka gave up a single, three doubles and Aaron Judge’s 27th home run.

Right-hander Juan Minaya was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte.

Petricka, 29, goes on the 10-day DL. He allowed 11 earned runs over 10 2/3 innings over nine appearances after returning from a right lat strain. He was on the disabled list from April 5 to June 8.

Petricka has battled an assortment of injuries over the last three seasons. In 2015, he began the season on the DL with a right forearm strain, then appeared in 63 games in relief and posting a 3.63 ERA. He appeared in only nine games in 2016 before undergoing season ending surgery on his right hip in June. Petricka led the Sox in appearances in 2014 with 67 and took a 3.31 career ERA into this season, pitching in 102 games.

Minaya, 26, is 1-0 with a 6.94 ERA and 16 strikeouts in eight relief appearances covering 11 2/3 innings over three stints with the Sox this season. In 13 appearances with Charlotte, he is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 19 innings.
