SHARE White Sox to call up Leesman, Anderson

Left-hander Charlie Leesman and catcher Bryan Anderson will be the first two September callups from AAA Charlotte to join the White Sox, manager Robin Ventura said Saturday.They are expected in Boston on Sunday.

Leesman, 26, pitched five innings in a start against the Twins on Aug. 9, escaping trouble by allowing only one run on four hits and five walks. He struck out eight. At Charlotte, he was 4-3 with a 3.87 ERA, 78 strikeouts and 41 walks over 88 1/3 innings.

Leesman will work out of the bullpen, although Ventura did not rule out a spot start.

Anderson, 26, hit .224 in 64 games at Charlotte. With 25 games of big league experience with the Cardinals in 2010 and 2012, he comes up as a third catcher for September.

A couple more callups are expected to join the Sox in New York early next week.
