|White Sox Place LHP on DL
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have placed reliever Erick Threets on the 15-day disabled list with a torn ligament in his left elbow.
Threets, who will miss the remainder of the season, will visit Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles next week to determine if he needs surgery.
Threets was injured during the ninth inning of Friday night's 9-4 victory over the Yankees. The left-hander did not allow an earned run in 11 appearances this season.
The injury is another blow to the White Sox bullpen, who also lost left-hander Matt Thornton and right-hander J.J. Putz to the disabled list on Wednesday.
The White Sox recalled right-hander Carlos Torres from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday to take Threets' spot.
