White Sox Recall Carlos Sanchez from Class AAA Charlotte


NEW YORK - Prior to tonight's game at Yankee Stadium, the Chicago White Sox recalled infielder Carlos Sanchez from Class AAA Charlotte. He takes the roster spot of second baseman Gordon Beckham, who was traded to the Los Angeles Angels yesterday for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Sanchez, 22, is hitting .293 (128-437) with 19 doubles, six triples, seven home runs, 57 RBI, 60 runs scored and 16 stolen bases in 110 games with Charlotte this season. He has appeared in 64 games at second base, 44 at shortstop and two at third. Sanchez, who entered the season as the third-youngest player in the International League, owns a .325 average (98-302) vs. right-handers and a .333 mark (18-54) with RISP/two outs.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Sanchez is batting .302 (26-86) with six doubles, two home runs and 15 RBI in the second half this season.

The Maracay, Venezuela native made his major-league debut with Chicago on July 13 at Cleveland as the starting shortstop, going 0-5. He was optioned back to the Knights on July 19.

Sanchez is a career .284 hitter (528-2,124) with 80 doubles, 18 triples, 10 home runs, 192 RBI, 270 runs scored and 74 stolen bases in 497 career games over six seasons in the White Sox system since 2009.
