DETROIT -- Reserve catcher Tyler Flowers returns from the paternity list on Saturday following the birth of his daughter, Mia Therese, and utility infielder Orlando Hudson figures to join him when rosters expand. Hudson has been on an injury rehab assignment after being placed on the disabled list with a left foot contusion.

As for the other September additions, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said the team is still going through the possibilities. Triple-A Charlotte has qualified for the International League playoffs, meaning the callups could be staggered.

"We are the first concern, but you don't want to strip them down," Ventura said. "We'll have a few guys tomorrow. And then after their playoffs are over, we'll have more guys.

"There's going to be a lot of the same guys who were up early in the year. It's not going to be one of those where you're going to get a lot of guys who you guys haven't seen. It's close to the same guys."

Dylan Axelrod not only will be added but should start Monday's home contest against the Twins. Left-handed reliever Leyson Septimo, on a rehab assignment for left biceps inflammation, figures to be a candidate, as do right-handed relievers Jhan Marinez and Brian Omogrosso, who previously pitched for the White Sox this season.

The White Sox outrighted left-handed pitcher Daniel Moskos to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, putting the team's 40-man roster at 39. That move could open up a spot for a left-handed pinch-hitter such as veteran Dan Johnson, a speed guy off the bench or another possible move made by general manager Ken Williams prior to Friday's 10:59 p.m. CT deadline to have a player eligible for the postseason roster.

"There are also a lot of guys who aren't coming [up]," Ventura said. "There's not really a need for that many of them, but eventually it will be good to have."
