White Sox Reinstate OF Adam Engel From Injured List

The team also designated infielder Cheslor Cuthbert for assignment.

(670 The Score) The White Sox have reinstated outfielder Adam Engel from the injured list, they announced Wednesday afternoon.

Engel had been placed on the IR as contract tracing was conducted after he may have come in contact with someone outside the baseball world who had the coronavirus. Engel didn't display any symptoms himself.

Engel is hitting .263 with two homers and five RBIs in 14 games this season.

In another roster move, the White Sox recalled 25-year-old right-hander Dane Dunning from their alternate camp in Schaumburg. He'll make his MLB debut when he starts against the Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field on Wednesday evening. Dunning has a 2.74 ERA across three minor league seasons.

Additionally, the White Sox optioned right-hander Jose Ruiz to Schaumburg and designated infielder Cheslor Cuthbert for assignment. Ruiz has pitched in two games for the White Sox this season, while Cuthbert had appeared in one game.
