The Chicago White Sox have picked Gavin Sheets for Triple-A Charlotte as pitcher Jimmy Lambert joins the team in time for this weekend’s opener against Texas, the team announced Friday on Twitter.

Overall, Sheets, an on-the-spot starter who has mostly seen time as a designated hitter, is hitting .204 of 137 at-bats in 44 appearances in 2022, his second year in Major League action.
Lambert returns to the Majors from Charlotte, the right-handed pitcher has appeared in nine games for the Sox since 2020. In his three appearances in 2022, Lambert has seven strikeouts in seven innings with a 5.14 ERA and an 0- 2 recording.
The Sox return to action tonight against the Rangers, the first pitch is at 7:10 p.m. at the guaranteed rate field.
