Chicago White Sox Call Up Jhan Marinez

With a one-game lead in the AL Central, the Chicago White Sox need all the talent they can get to hold off the charging Detroit Tigers with just 20 games until the conclusion of the 2012 regular season. They added one more piece to their puzzle on Friday by calling up Jhan Marinez from Triple-A.

Marinez, 24, played with Triple-A Charlotte this year and joins the White Sox after Charlotte's postseason run came to a conclusion on Thursday. In 63 innings with the Knights, Marinez allowed 39 hits, 30 walks and struck out 65 batters.

Between a 1-2/3 innings appearance early this season and a brief stint as a member of the Marlins in July 2010, Marinez has 4-1/3 career innings pitched in the majors with two earned runs and a 1-1 record.
