The Chicago White Sox had to tweak their rotation for the upcoming week as Scott Carroll will miss his scheduled start due to a blister. They also optioned pitcher Eric Surkamp to Charlotte but have yet to name a player to the 25 man active roster.
Surkamp has struggled for Chicago this season as he carried a 7.30 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 12.1 innings of work heading into Sunday, where he allowed a walk in a third of an inning.
