CHICAGO Teams

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The White Sox have placed RF Avisail Garcia on the DL because of the hamstring injury he suffered when trying to beat out a grounder during Monday's game. In his place, Chicago has called up OF/1B Daniel Palka from Triple-A Charlotte. Palka, 26, was a waiver claim from the Twins last fall who will be making his big league debut. In any event, White Sox fans will probably look at his name and read it as "Not Eloy Jimenez." But the lefty-hitting Palka was off to a good start for Charlotte, so we'll see what he can do in The Show.
