DETROIT -- Gordon Beckham rejoined the White Sox for Thursday afternoon's series finale against Detroit. He returned from his injury rehab assignment and was activated from the disabled list.

To make room for Beckham, the White Sox optioned starting pitcher Charlie Leesman to Triple-A Charlotte after Wednesday's 6-4 victory. The White Sox were short a position player Wednesday night, with Adam Eaton working through a left knee strain and Conor Gillaspie out of action because of a sore left hand.

After knocking out two hits, scoring two runs and stealing a base Tuesday night for Double-A Birmingham, Beckham finished 0-for-4 in the Barons' loss to Tennessee on Wednesday afternoon. Beckham's injury rehab for a strained left oblique covered 43 at-bats in 12 games.
