The White Sox placed center fielder and leadoff man Alejandro De Aza on the 15-day disabled list with bruised left ribs and recalled outfielder Jordan Danks from Class AAA Charlotte on Tuesday.

The DL move is retroactive to August 18.

Danks, 26, is hitting .317 with eight home runs for Charlotte. He has reached base safely in 30 consecutive games. He was optioned August 12, two days after hitting a game-ending home run against the A’s at U.S. Cellular Field.

De Aza is hitting .281 with six home runs, 44 RBI, 73 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in 111 games this season. Dewayne Wise, who was called up when Danks went down, has been a capable replacement for De Aza. Wise hit a two-run homer in the Sox’ 9-6 win against the Yankees on Monday night.

De Aza sustained the injury sliding into second base in Kansas City over the weekend.
