IF Cintron reinstated from bereavement list

CHICAGO (TICKER) —The Chicago White Sox reinstated infielder Alex Cintron from the bereavement list on Thursday.

Cintron had been away from the team since Sunday to be with his ailing grandfather in Puerto Rico.

A utility infielder for the White Sox, Cintron has just one hit in 12 at-bats this season. For his career, the switch-hitter is batting .279 with 30 homers and 193 RBI.

To make room for Cintron, Chicago optioned infielder Andy Gonzalez to Charlotte (AAA).
