Designated hitter Matt Davidson is back from the 10-day disabled list.

The White Sox reinstated Davidson on Monday and announced they optioned catcher Alfredo González and infielder Matt Skole to Class AAA Charlotte.

The Sox also teased an additional roster move that is expected to take place before Tuesday’s doubleheader at Minnesota. It’ll most likely be catcher Kevan Smith who will receive the call-up from Charlotte.

Davidson, who along with Tim Anderson lead the White Sox in homers this season (11), was off to the best start of his career this season before back spasms caused him to miss five games. His absence ultimately landed him on the disabled list on May 28 (retroactive to May 25).

Davidson, 27, is hitting .243 (34-140) with six doubles and 28 RBI in 42 games this season.

González and Skole had brief stints with the White Sox. González recorded his first major-league hit on Sunday against Brewers, a game-tying RBI single in the fifth inning. Meanwhile, Skole, who hit .273 (3-for-11) with one home run, one RBI and two runs scored in his four games with the White Sox, hit a single and a solo home run in his major-league debut against the Indians in Cleveland last week.
