Hernandez sent down after rough outing

The Chicago White Sox optioned starting pitcher Pedro Hernandez to Triple-A Charlotte after Wednesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox.

Hernandez had been recalled earlier on Wednesday and made his major-league debut against the Red Sox in the evening. He allowed 12 hits and eight runs in four innings in a 10-1 loss to the Red Sox.

The White Sox will make a corresponding move prior to Thursday’s game.
