The struggling White Sox will welcome the return of shortstop Tim Anderson, as well as infielder Hanser Alberto, from the injured list before they open a three-game series against the American League Central leading Minnesota Twins Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The team made a whopping nine additional roster moves Tuesday:

*Selected the contracts of RHP Alexander Colomé, outfielder Billy Hamilton and left-hander Sammy Peralta from Class AAA Charlotte;

*Placed RHP Joe Kelly on the paternity list;

*Placed infielder/outfielder Romy Gonzalez on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to May 1) with right shoulder inflammation;

*Optioned outfielder Oscar Colás and infielder Lenyn Sosa to Charlotte;

*Designated left-hander Jake Diekman and righty Frank German for assignment.

Colas, who had a strong spring and won an Opening Day roster spot, is batting .211/.265/.276 in 84 plate appearances and has been shaky at times defensively, signaling the need for more time at Charlotte. He played only seven games at Charlotte last season after excelling at High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham.

Sosa is batting .151/.167/.245 in 16 games. He had his share of shaky defensive lapses as well.

Peralta, 24, owns a 3.52 ERA with three walks and 15 strikeouts in eight relief appearances with Charotte this season. He has a 3.45 ERA over four minor-league seasons.

Colomé, 34, has pitched to a 3.38 ERA over eight innings and eight appearances at Charlotte, with seven strikeouts and one save after signing a minor-league contract on April 6. He owns a 3.34 ERA with 159 saves over 10 seasons in the major leagues including the Sox in 2019-20 and Twins in 2021.

Hamilton is a career .239/.292/.326 hitter with 324 stolen bases. At Charlotte, he was 9-for-48 with a .188/.328/.271 hitting line and three stolen bases in 11 games.

A speedster with plus defensive skills and pinch-running flexibility, Hamilton, 32, batted .220/.242/.378 in 135 plate appearances for the Sox in 2021.

Anderson’s return moves Elvis Andrus back to second base, where he played every day before Anderson sprained his left knee on April 10.

The Sox (8-21) snapped a 10-game losing streak Sunday with a walk-off victory over the Rays.
