The White Sox have called up two of their top pitching prospects following Monday's doubleheader.

The Chicago White Sox have made another roster move following Monday's doubleheader. South Side Sox is reporting that the clubs has promoted SP Nestor Molina and SP Jake Petricka.

Molina, acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in the RP Sergio Santos trade, has ranked as one of the White Sox's top prospects since joining the organization. He will make his major league debut after having dominated minor league hitting, striking out 25 batters while walking only 5 through his 6 minor league starts.

Petricka, another top White Sox prospect, has struggled to keep runners from scoring through the early part of the 2012 season, but has still managed to build a 24-to-12 strikeout-to-walk ratio through his 5 Triple-A starts.
