MINNEAPOLIS -- After losing two pitchers already this season to the waivers process, the Chicago White Sox got one back.

Left-hander Leyson Septimo was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday and optioned to Double-A Birmingham. The 25-year old was 2-1 with a 6.37 ERA at Double-A Mobile this season. He has limited right-handers to a .186 batting average (13 for 70).

Septimo has made 135 relief appearances in the Diamondbacks’ system since 2008. He pitched in the 2009 Futures Game and was a 2010 Southern League All-Star.

White Sox right-handers Jeff Gray and Jeff Marquez were both claimed off waivers this season. Gray went to the Mariners while Marquez was grabbed by the Yankees.

The White Sox’s 40-man roster is now at 37.
