Cleveland will send right-hander Hunter Gaddis (0-1, 6.86 ERA) to the mound in the series opener in place of Peyton Battenfield, who landed on the injured list with a sore right shoulder.
Gaddis, 25, will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus, where he is 1-2 with a 5.12 ERA in four starts. The rookie began the season in the majors, but allowed a total of 15 earned runs in 17 2/3 innings in his first four starts.
Gaddis made a start against the White Sox last September, surrendering seven runs on eight hits and one walk in four innings. Gavin Sheets, Andrew Vaughn, Yoan Moncada, Yasmani Grandal and Elvis Andrus all homered against him.
Chicago was expected to start Mike Clevinger, but the veteran hurler was placed on the 15-day injured list with right wrist inflammation on Sunday. The White Sox instead are expected to turn to right-hander Jesse Scholtens (0-1, 3.00), who will be recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Scholtens, 29, appeared in two games with the White Sox in early April, allowing two runs (one earned) in three innings. He is 2-2 with a 3.99 ERA in seven starts with Charlotte this season.
