White Sox recall Scott Carroll, designate Hector Noesi for assignment


CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox made a change to their pitching staff Thursday when they recalled right-hander Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte and designated fellow righty Hector Noesi for assignment.

It will be the second stint with the White Sox this season for the 30-year-old Carroll. He made eight appearances earlier this year, all in relief, totaling 17 1/3 innings. He was 1-1 with a 3.12 ERA and had seven strikeouts with seven walks. He was 3-2 with a 2.37 ERA over six starts at Charlotte this season.

Noesi, 28, was 0-4 with a 6.89 ERA over 10 outings (five starts) this season with the White Sox. He avoided arbitration this offseason and agreed to a one-year, $1.95 million contract. Noesi, who lost his starting spot to Carlos Rodon in early May, made just three appearances in June, all in blowout losses, and only one since June 6.
