White Sox Roster 2012: Chicago Promotes Ray Olmedo

The Chicago White Sox have promoted infielder Ray Olmedo from Triple-A Charlotte to replace the traded Eduardo Escobar on the active roster, as Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports notes. Escobar was dealt to Minnesota on Saturday night along with Pedro Hernandez in exchange for Francisco Liriano.

For Olmedo, his return to the majors has required some serious patience. After spending time with the Cincinnati Reds and Toronto Blue Jays from 2003-2007, the infielder has bounced around the minor leagues trying to get his big league career going again.

After playing fairly well in the minors this year, he'll finally be getting his opportunity with one of the AL's key contenders. Primarily playing shortstop, the 31-year-old has hit .273/.340/.335 with zero homers and nine steals in 310 plate appearances with Charlotte.
