The White Sox recalled Michael Ynoa from Class AAA Charlotte Tuesday, and the right-hander promptly made his major league debut with two scoreless innings in a 11-8 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
Ynoa, 24, walked two and struck out two and did not allow a hit while covering the seventh and eighth innings.
Ynoa, once a prized prospect of the Oakland A’s, pitched to a 1-3 record and 3.90 ERA with 24 strikeouts and four saves in 21 relief appearances covering 27 2/3 innings between AA Birmingham and Charlotte. Right-handers batted .210 against him.
Ynoa’s call-up follows right-hander Tyler Danish’s demotion to Charlotte after the Sox’ 10-9 victory against the Detroit Tigers in 12 innings Monday night.
Ynoa was acquired from the A’s as part of a six-player trade that brought Jeff Samardzija to the Sox in December 2014.
Ynoa is the 13th player promoted from Charlotte this season. The others: Erik Johnson, Kevan Smith, Miguel Gonzalez, Hector Sanchez, Daniel Webb, Carlos Sanchez, Tommy Kahnle, Scott Carroll, Matt Purke, J.B. Shuck, Jason Coats and Tim Anderson.
