Roster moves: Right-handed pitcher Scott Carroll, who was scratched prior to Wednesday's game against Pawtucket, was recalled by the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. Carroll will be added to Chicago's roster in place of right-hander Hector Noesi, who was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Thursday. Carroll's contract was previously purchased by Chicago on April 26. In eight games with the big league club, he posted a 1-1 record with a 3.12 ERA in 17.1 innings out of the bullpen. Carroll was optioned back to Charlotte on May 28, and in three starts with the Knights, he went 2-1 with a 2.37 ERA.

The Knights placed right-handed pitcher Chris Beck on the DL prior to Thursday's game. In 10 starts with Charlotte this season, Beck is 3-2 with a 3.15 ERA. Beck made his major league debut for the Chicago on May 28 at Baltimore. Against the Orioles, Beck pitched six innings and surrendered 10 hits and five runs (four earned) en route to a 6-3 loss. Baseball America ranked Beck as the No. 11 prospect in the White Sox organization prior to the 2015 season.
