CHICAGO -- Since newly-acquired pitcher Edwin Jackson won’t be able to arrive to U.S. Cellular Field by game time tonight, right-hander Lucas Harrell will come up from Triple-A Charlotte to make his major-league debut.

Harrell, a second-round pick in 2004, is 9-9 with a 4.24 ERA, taking half his starts in the hitter-friendly ballpark in Charlotte. He moved himself up the pitching depth chart last year when he went 12-4 with a 3.27 ERA in 25 starts between Double-A Birmingham and Charlotte.

The 25-year-old will wear uniform No. 58 when he faces the Oakland A’s tonight. In seven seasons in the White Sox’s system, Harrell is 42-37 with a 3.79 ERA.
