The White Sox have reinstated right-handed pitcher Dylan Covey from the 10-day disabled list. Covey will take the place of right-handed pitcher Tyler Clippard, who was traded to the Astros Sunday.

Covey, 26, was put on the disabled list on May 26 with a strained left oblique suffered during his last start on May 23 at Arizona. He made three starts with the Arizona League White Sox and two relief appearances with Class AAA-Charlotte during a rehabilitation assignment.

Covey is 0-4 with a 8.12 ERA in eight starts (37 2/3 innings) this season. He was selected by the White Sox in the Rule 5 Draft last December.
