KANSAS CITY - Prior to today's game at Kansas City, the Chicago White Sox placed right-handed reliever Nate Jones on the 15-day disabled list with a muscle strain in his left hip and recalled right-hander Jake Petricka (puh-TRICH-kuh) from Class AAA Charlotte.

Petricka, 25, appeared in 16 games with Chicago last season, his first in the major leagues. He went 1-1 with a 3.26 ERA (7 ER/19.1 IP) and 10 strikeouts after making his major-league debut on August 22 at Kansas City.

Petricka also was 5-0 with a 1.81 ERA (11 ER/54.2 IP), one save and 58 strikeouts over 31 combined games (one start) between Charlotte and Class AA Birmingham last season.

Jones, 28, has appeared in two games this season (4 ER/0.0 IP). He made eight Cactus League appearances after being sidelined for the start of spring with a left glute strain.

Jones is 12-5 with a 3.55 ERA (59 ER/149.2 IP), 23 holds and 154 strikeouts over 137 career appearances with the White Sox since 2012. He ranks among the American League relief leaders since 2012 in IP (2nd), wins (T2nd), winning percentage (7th), strikeouts (9th) and games (12th).
