CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox recalled right-hander Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte and designated right-hander Hector Noesi for assignment before Thursday night's game with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Carroll, 30, was 3-2 with a 2.37 ERA in six starts with Charlotte this season. He was 1-1 with a 3.12 ERA in eight relief appearances during his first stint with the White Sox from April 26 to May 28.
Carroll will be used out of the bullpen as a long reliever and possible spot starter. Noesi, 28, was 0-4 with a 6.89 ERA in 10 games (five starts) with the White Sox this season.
"Just the way the role evolved, it's a better option for us to have Scotty in that role," manager Robin Ventura said. "He's better suited for that spot. Hector is probably more of a starter than he is a long-relief guy."
