The White Sox recalled right-handed pitcher Michael Kopech from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. They also placed lefty Aaron Bummer and right-hander Evan Marshall on the 10-day IL. Bummer is retroactive to June 28.

Kopech, sidelined since May 26 with a strained right hamstring, threw off the mound in a simulated game last week.

“Saw exciting progress,” manager Tony La Russa said at the time. “Arm had that life. [He] really had — for not being on the mound and throwing to a catcher and a hitter — he had good command of all of his pitches.”

The team said Bummer is out with a strained right hamstring, and Marshall has a strained right flexor pronator.

Marshall left Tuesday night’s 7-6 victory over the Twins with right forearm soreness.

Marshall recorded two outs, allowed two doubles and was charged with two runs in the seventh inning before leaving alongside assistant trainer Josh Fallin. He has pitched to a 5.60 ERA this season after posting ERAs of 2.49 and 2.38 the previous two seasons. Marshall was a dependable late-inning pitcher in the last two seasons but has struggled this season.

The team also recalled LHP Jace Fry from Class AAA Charlotte.
