CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox made a roster move after Thursday’s victory, as they optioned outfielder Jordan Danks back to Triple-A Charlotte.

Danks appeared in 23 games during his second stint with the White Sox this season, mostly as a defensive replacement. He had just two hits in 22 at-bats for a .111 batting average. In 32 games in the major leagues this season, Danks was batting .135 (5-for-37).

The White Sox will make a corresponding move before Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Manager Robin Ventura said the move will be for a position player.

“We’re just making a different move,” Ventura said. “It’s nothing he’s done. We’ve got to go give him at-bats. It’s not easy sitting around and expecting to do well with one hit every two weeks. That’s the tough part of the game.”

The White Sox could end up recalling outfielder Blake Tekotte, who had three at-bats in the major leagues earlier this season and has played in parts of the two previous seasons with the San Diego Padres.
