The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Andrew Benintendi on the 10-Day IL with left Achilles tendonitis on Sunday. To take his spot on the roster, the team called up Oscar Colás from Triple-A Charlotte.

Benintendi needed to leave Saturday’s game against the Brewers early due to the injury, just moments after hitting his first home run since Apr. 30. Benintendi is hitting .195/.230/.284 with four homers and 18 RBI.

Colás has played in one game for the White Sox this year back on Apr. 10. He went 0-1 at the plate. In 46 games with the Knights, Colás has slashed .244/.358/.406 with five homers, 21 RBI and six stolen bases.
