Prior to tonight's game vs. Boston, the Chicago White Sox recalled left-handed pitcher Aaron Bummer from Class AAA Charlotte, purchased the contract of left-hander Caleb Frare from Charlotte and transferred right-hander Nate Jones to the 60-day disabled list.
 
Bummer, 24, went 2-3 with a 2.64 ERA (9 ER/30.2 IP) and 30 strikeouts over 31 appearances with Charlotte this season. He did not allow an earned run over his final 10.0 IP covering 10 outings.
 
Bummer, 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, made the White Sox Opening Day roster, going 0-1 with a 3.26 ERA (7 ER/19.1 IP) and 21 strikeouts in 26 appearances before being optioned to Charlotte on June 6. 
 
He has gone 1-4 with a 3.92 ERA (18 ER/41.1 IP), 38 strikeouts and eight holds in 56 games over parts of two major-league seasons with the Sox (2017-18).

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Frare limited opponents to a .162 (32-198) average and posted a 0.94 WHIP between the three stops.
