White Sox claim Dustin Garneau off waivers from Oakland and option him to Triple-A Charlotte;

The Chicago White Sox today claimed catcher Dustin Garneau off waivers from the Oakland Athletics and optioned him to Class AAA Charlotte. The club also transferred right-handed pitcher Miguel González to the 60-day disabled list.
 
Garneau, 30, hit .208 (15-72) with three doubles, two home runs and nine RBI with Class AAA Nashville this season. He has thrown out 41.7 percent (10-24) of attempted basestealers with the Sounds.
 
A native of San Pedro, Calif., Garneau split the 2017 season between the Colorado and Oakland organizations. He made the Rockies Opening Day roster, was optioned to Class AAA Alburquerque on May 16 and claimed off waivers by the Athletics on August 4. Garneau hit .188 (21-112) with eight doubles, two home runs and nine RBI over 41 games between Colorado and Oakland last season, and batted .281 (36-128) with nine doubles, two triples, 10 home runs, 26 RBI and a .347 on-base percentage in 36 games with Alburquerque.
 
Garneau, 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, has appeared in 87 career games with the Rockies (2015-17) and Athletics (2017), hitting .192 (48-250) with 17 doubles, five home runs, 23 RBI and 24 walks. He has thrown out 38.5 percent (15-39) of attempted basestealers in his major-league career. Garneau originally was selected by Colorado in the 19th round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Cal-State Fullerton.
 
González, 33, has been on the disabled list since April 23 (retroactive to April 19) with right rotator cuff inflammation. He is 0-3 with a 12.41 ERA (17 ER/12.1 IP) over three starts this season after re-signing with the White Sox as a free agent on January 11, 2018.
 
Chicago's 40-man roster remains at 40.
