White Sox Recall Lorenzo Barcelo

July 18, 2000

CHICAGO (AP) _ The Chicago White Sox recalled pitcher Lorenzo Barcelo from Triple-A Charlotte before Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Barcelo, who takes the roster spot of Cal Eldred, was 5-6 with a 4.44 ERA in 16 starts for Charlotte. Eldred was placed on the disabled list Monday with a tender elbow.

White Sox manager Jerry Manuel said Barcelo, a right-hander, will be used out of the bullpen initially, but might get a start next week against Kansas City. Another rookie, Mark Buehrle, will start in Eldred’s spot Wednesday at Minnesota.

The White Sox, who have the majors’ best record at 58-34, have five rookies on their pitching staff.
