White Sox make three roster moves

Prior to tonight's game vs. Toronto, the Chicago White Sox announced the following three roster moves:
 
•   Recalled RHP Thyago Vieira from Class AAA Charlotte;
•   Purchased the contract of RHP Tyler Danish from Charlotte;
•   Designated RHP Chris Volstad for assignment.
 
Vieira, 25, went 0-4 with a 5.05 ERA (23 ER/41.0 IP), six saves and 50 strikeouts over 36 relief appearances with Charlotte this season.
