KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One of the players obtained as compensation from the Miami Marlins for manager Ozzie Guillen will be wearing a White Sox uniform on Friday night.
Right-hander Jhan Marinez, who has pitched 13 consecutive scoreless innings over his last six outings at AAA Charlotte, was recalled before the Sox opened a three-game series against the Royals.
Marinez takes the roster spot of right-hander Deunte Heath, who was optioned to Charlotte on Sunday.
Marinez, 23, is 2-2 with a 3.14 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 26 relief appearances with Charlotte. His .182 opponents batting average ranks third in the International Leage.
Marinez was acquired on September 29, 2011 as part of the compensation for the Marlins agreeing to terms with Guillen.
Marinez wear uniform No. 57. He's is 11th rookie to appear on the 25-man roster this season, and the ninth pitcher. The Sox will likely make another roster move when right-hander Philip Humber comes off the disabled list, possibly on Tuesday.
