Notes: Following today’s White Sox game, Chicago optioned RHP Andre Rienzo to the Knights. According to reports out of Chicago, the team plans to add a position player to take Rienzo’s place on the Major League roster. … Just before 6 p.m. today, Knights 2B/ SS Carlos Sanchez was scratched from Charlotte’s lineup and “put on hold” to join the White Sox, according to Knights manager Joel Skinner. … Chicago SS Alexei Ramiez left today’s game in the fourth inning with a back issue. … Tyler Saladino is DHing today because of what Skinner called a “minor forearm thing.” … Knights 2B Micah Johnson is already on his way to the Futures Game (he left at 8 a.m.) and not currently with the club. As a result, Matt Davidson is making his first professional start at SS tonight and Matt Tuiasosopo (who has Major League experience at the position) is starting at 3B.
