The White Sox announced that starting pitcher Lance Lynn and catcher Yasmani Grandal have been brought back to the big league club. Lance Lynn was on the Bereavement List, while Yasmani Grandal was on the Injured List.
To make room on the 26-man roster, the White Sox optioned lefty reliever Tanner Banks and catcher Carlos Perez back to AAA Charlotte.
Grandal spent a few games rehabilitating in AAA Charlotte before his recall, hitting .455/.539/.818 in 13 plate appearances across three games over the weekend. He hasn’t fared nearly as well at the big league level this season, hitting just .203/.307/.259 in what has been the worst season of his career. He is hoping for some sort of bounceback over the final month of this season.
Elsewhere, in 2022, Lance Lynn has a 5.00 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 14 starts (77.1 IP). He is in the first year of a two-year extension he signed with the White Sox during the 2021 season. In recent games he has seen much better results, posting a 2.73 ERA across five starts in August. He will look to continue on this solid run over the next few starts left in this season.
Banks and Perez will continue to get their work in with Charlotte as their season comes to an end in the coming weeks. Banks has been up and down with the White Sox this season, and on the year, he has a 3.26 ERA in 47 innings. Perez, 25, who has had an incredible season at AAA, received just one start and four plate appearances over this week since being called up. He was able to notch his first career hit, however.
