Retroactive to yesterday, per The Score. Dransy gets the call.

He'll fit right in with the skill level of the rest of our middle infielders.

Hopefully he won't play much. If Manuel was still at the helm, Kelly would be starting tonight to "get his feet wet."

Dransfeldt is a poor man's Jason Dellaero.

So he'll hit below .180

I'll miss Jose's homers, but not too much. Many of his runs only offset the runs given up by his errors. Maybe some time off will get him back in step.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, April 20, 2004


WHITE SOX PLACE JOSE VALENTIN ON DISABLED LIST;
PURCHASE THE CONTRACT OF KELLY DRANSFELDT


CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox have placed shortstop Jose Valentin on the
15-day disabled list (retroactive to April 19) with a pulled left hamstring and
have purchased the contract of infielder Kelly Dransfeldt from Class AAA
Charlotte.

Valentin, 34, reaggravated the injury running the bases in Sunday’s 5-0 victory
at Tampa Bay. He is hitting .271 (13-48) with four doubles, three home runs and
eight RBI in 10 games. Valentin ranks second on the team in home runs and
slugging percentage (.583).

Dransfeldt, who turned 29 on April 15, was hitting .265 (9-34) with one home run
and four RBI in 12 games at Charlotte. He was a non-roster invitee to spring
training and hit .429 (18-43) in 20 games. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder played in
36 major-league games with Texas between 1999-2001, batting .159 (13-82) with
one home run and seven RBI.

Dransfeldt, a Joliet native who resides in Morris, Ill., is expected to join the
White Sox in time for tonight’s 7:05 p.m. CDT game vs. New York and will wear
uniform No. 32.

Uribe will start at short right? That won't be bad with Harris batting lead-off, and then Uribe batting 2nd. That actually may be better than Jose hitting 2nd.......

I think Dransfeldt played well enough in spring training to earn a roster spot. Since Uribe will start at short and Harris will start at second, Dransfeldt will only be counted on as a dependable back up. I think he can do a good job in that role.

Alright, alright, relax with the wheels are falling off stuff...a pulled hammy is not the end of the world, fifteen days should be more than enough rest for Jose and a couple of days off for Frank is fine. Let's get through the Yankees series with a win and everything is ok. I'm glad that we are getting this injury stuff out of the way now, and not in September.

While I wouldn't call this a good thing, I wouldn't say the wheels are falling off the cart. Let's just hope Frank doesn't have to go on the DL as well.

i don't know about his fielding, but his minor league hitting stats are atrocious. like .220 10 BB 110K atrocious.

As long as Dransfeldt doesnt actually start we're in good shape

I'm looking forwad to a Uribe/Harris middle infield...possibly a preview to next season (or even midseason) starters?

I love Hosey, but Harris and Uribe in the lineup sounds good to me.

I'm sure the only reason they are bringing him up is to plug a hole in case of an emergency.

Maybe you people want to see the Sox without Jose Valentin, but not me.

CBS Sportsline has an interesting listing of how well the players have been doing so far. Here's the shortstop list:

When I saw it this morning, it caught me by surprise.

Valentin has been hitting fine but defending very, very poorly. It seems the loss of Alomar hurt him quite a bit and his age isn't helping. Meanwhile, Harris has been hitting, and Uribe is on a tear. If they can both hit .260, that's your starting middle infield, beginning next spring at the very latest.

I didn't realize Kaz Matsui was up to .306. Too bad the Sox cheaped out and signed the wrong Japanese fellow. Ah, what might have been!

So he's gonna miss the whole homestand I guess. After all of the defensive miscues he's made, I'd want to be on the DL for the 13 straight home games too.
