KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Chicago White Sox placed reliever Nate Jones on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation and purchased the contract of left-hander David Holmberg from Triple-A Charlotte before their series finale against the Royals on Thursday.
The White Sox also scratched third baseman Todd Frazier shortly before the first pitch. He was dealing with back stiffness, and a team spokesman said he was day to day.
Matt Davidson took his place in the starting lineup.
White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Jones' elbow issue is "relatively minor" and that he should be back in a couple of weeks. The 31-year-old pitcher, who had Tommy John surgery in May 2014, was 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA over 11 relief appearances this season.
Holmberg was 3-0 with a 1.76 ERA over six appearances with Charlotte. To clear roster space for him, the White Sox transferred left-hander Carlos Rodon to the 60-day disabled list.
Rodon has been out since March 30 with left biceps bursitis. He was not expected back until the 60-day mark, and his transfer does not mean that he has experienced a setback.
