CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox put left-hander Scott Schoeneweis on the 15-day disabled list Friday with an inflamed left elbow and recalled right-hander Felix Diaz from Triple-A Charlotte.

Schoeneweis is 5-6 with a 4.36 ERA in 14 starts and has lost four straight decisions.

Scheduled to start Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, Schoeneweis won't pitch again until after the All-Star break.

"It's really more precautionary than anything," White Sox general manager Ken Williams said. "There is nothing structurally wrong with him. It was just Scott's feeling that he wasn't going to be able to go full bore tomorrow. So rather than be sorry, we are being a little safe."

Diaz made two starts for the White Sox Chicago earlier this season and was 0-1 with an 11.42 ERA. He will start Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
