The Chicago White Sox called up left-handed pitcher Donnie Veal from Triple-A Charlotte a day after optioning Pedro Hernandez, who was hit hard in his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Veal, who was a second-round draft choice of the Chicago Cubs in 2005, is 6-3 with a 2.08 ERA in 29 relief appearances at Charlotte. Veal appeared in 19 games with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2009.

He will be the 21st pitcher to make the White Sox’s 25-man roster this season.

Hernandez, who was called up on Wednesday, allowed 12 hits and eight runs in four innings in a 10-1 loss to the Red Sox.
