White Sox Call Up Reliever Taylor Thompson

Right before the All-Star break, the White Sox called up prospect Carlos Sanchez to start at short stop for the final game of the unofficial first half. He was always expected to start just the one game, but the team let him stay up for a couple extra in a utility role as the bullpen was well-rested after the break.
