Gillaspie returns, Morel stays

CHICAGO -- With a well-rested bullpen, the Chicago White Sox will carry an extra position player for Friday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians.

Since teams are able to operate with a 26-man roster for certain doubleheaders, Conor Gillaspie was activated from paternity leave while Brent Morel will remain with the team for at least another day.

Gillaspie was not on the roster Wednesday after leaving for the birth of his first child. Morel, the Opening Day third baseman in 2012, was called up from Triple-A Charlotte and went 1-for-3 for the White Sox on Wednesday against the New York Mets.

Manager Robin Ventura said Wednesday he was leading toward adding a reliever for the doubleheader, but starter John Danks pitched eight innings that night and Thursday was an off day leaving a fresh bullpen heading into the weekend.
