CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox optioned infielder Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte after Saturday’s game and will have a corresponding move before Sunday’s series finale against the Houston Astros.

The White Sox are expected to call up a pitcher to get some bullpen depth.

Sanchez was called up last Sunday when Alexei Ramirez was experiencing back issues and started at shortstop in the first-half finale. Pitcher Andre Rienzo was sent back to Charlotte at the time.

The White Sox bullpen hasn’t been scored upon over the past two games but has pitched seven innings while essentially operating a man short.
