CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox recalled outfielder Trayce Thompson, brother of Golden State Warriors star , from Triple-A Charlotte before the game with the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

Thompson takes the roster spot of right-hander , who was optioned to the minors on Sunday. The White Sox had been playing one outfielder short since (left hamstring strain) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Thompson, 24, was hitting .260 with 13 home runs, 39 runs batted in and 53 runs scored for Charlotte this season.

"He's an athletic kid, a smart baseball player," Chicago manager said. "We needed an extra outfielder and Trayce was playing the best."

He is the son of Mychal Thompson, who played 13 seasons in the NBA.
