White Sox Roster 2012: Chicago Options Donnie Veal To Triple-A

The Chicago White Sox optioned relief pitcher Donnie Veal to Triple-A Charlotte after Sunday afternoon's game against the Detroit Tigers, according to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago. Veal appeared in just one game with the team during his short stint in Chicago, as he's spent most of the year pitching in Charlotte's bullpen.

Once considered a top prospect in the Chicago Cubs farm system, Veal has bounced around pro baseball for years without really establishing himself anywhere. He appeared in some games with the Pittsburgh Pirates back in 2009, but he struggled badly and didn't return to the majors until this year.

Over 29 games with Charlotte this year, Veal has posted a 2.09 ERA with 53 strikeouts and 21 walks in 43.1 innings. Given his success in the minors, it wouldn't be surprising if the lefty got another shot in the big leagues pretty soon.

As Hayes writes, the move frees up a roster spot for starting pitcher Gavin Floyd, who is returning from the disabled list soon.
