CLEVELAND — White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal landed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee strain Sunday, and Triple-A catcher Carlos Perez was selected fromCharlotte to take his place on the active roster.
Perez arrived at Progressive Field Sunday morning before the Sox’ scheduled game against the Guardians.
Grandal, who suffered the injury Saturday night attempting to score on Elvis Andrus’ single in the seventh inning, was getting an MRI Sunday morning. He is hitting .203 with three home runs in 74 games.
“They’re waiting to see,” manager Tony La Russa said. “He left on crutches [Saturday night] and he kind of limped in without the crutches so, we’ll see.”
P?rez, 26, is hitting .257/.319/.446 with 17 home runs in 91 games with Charlotte this season.
Seby Zavala assumes the role of No. 1 catcher in Grandal’s absence. A native of Valencia, Venezuela, P?rez has no major-league experience and will wear uniform No. 21.
