White Sox promote Heath, Greene
Knights are first to get Major League call

It didn’t take Charlotte Knights relief pitcher Deunte Heath to get the call he’s been waiting on.


Heath, a right-hander who appeared in two games so far this season with Charlotte, has been recalled to the Chicago White Sox, the first Knight to be promoted to the major league squad this season. Heath, who is on Chicago’s 40-man roster, has six strikeouts over three scoreless innings this year.


Last season, Heath posted a 4-3 record with a 1.48 ERA in 36 games (four starts) with Charlotte. He also pitched in three games with the White Sox in 2012, his first stint in the majors. The Atlanta native will take the roster spot of infielder Gordon Beckham, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 10 with a broken left hand.


Infielder Tyler Greene, who was on a four-game hit-streak with the Knights, had his contract purchased by the White Sox on Sunday. He replaces infielder Angel Sanchez, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with lower back strain. Greene was hitting .265 (9-34) with seven runs scored, two doubles, four RBIs, and two walks in eight games with the Knights.


To make room on the White Sox' 40-man roster for Greene, Knights pitcher Charlie Leesman was designated for assignment.


Leesman had been on Charlotte’s disabled list this season but went 12-10 with a 2.47 earned run average in 26 Charlotte starts in 2012, finishing finished second in the International League in ERA. He tied for third in wins with three other IL pitchers and was named to the All-Star game.
