from today's Chicaho Sports

SAN DIEGO -- The White Sox gained flexibility on their 25-man roster Friday at the expense of 2001 first-round pick Kris Honel.

Honel, whose career has been hampered by right shoulder tendinitis, was taken off the 40-man roster and outrighted to Double-A Birmingham.

The move creates an opening in the event the Sox want to claim a player off waivers from another team, purchase the contract of a minor-league player not on the 40-man roster or acquire a player via trade for a minor-leaguer not on the 40-man roster.

Honel, 22, is 1-3 with a 7.55 ERA in eight games. The Providence product pitched in only five games last year because of injuries.

"As I told [Honel], he's building strength," Sox general manager Ken Williams said. "Right now, he's just getting to where he was before as a starting pitcher.

"I don't want this to shake his confidence. This will allow him to gradually build strength and not feel he has to rush back."

He was up to ninety in his last appearance, so at least the velocity is improving.
