Torres Recalled by White Sox

CHICAGO, Ill. - Former Kansas State starting pitcher Carlos Torres has been recalled by the Chicago White Sox and will make his second career major league start against Cleveland on Saturday.

Torres, who was drafted in the 15th round of the 2004 draft by the White Sox, made his major-league debut against Tampa Bay on July 22, and the rookie did not disappoint. Torres recorded a quality start, allowing three earned runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts in 6.0 innings as he took a no decision against the defending American League champions. The Sox offense came to life after Torres left the game, scoring once in the sixth and three times in the seventh to win, 4-3.

Two days later, Torres was sent back to Triple A Charlotte but remained on the 40-man roster.

This season in Triple A, Torres, a 2009 International League All-Star, holds a 9-4 record and a 2.21 ERA in 19 starts as the ace for the Charlotte Knights. The right-hander has tossed two complete games - including a rain-shortened perfect game - this season, while he has recorded 110 strikeouts as opposed to 45 walks. Through play on Friday, Torres had the top ERA in the International League, while he was third in strikeouts.

Torres will enter his second MLB start on a high note after throwing six solid innings, allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts to earn the win at Louisville on August 1.

WGN will carry the White Sox game against the Indians beginning at 6 p.m.
