The Chicago White Sox have placed outfielder Kosuke Fukudome on their 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle, according to ESPN Chicago. To replace Fukudome on their roster, Chicago has called up Jordan Danks, brother of White Sox starter John Danks.

Fukudome last appeared for the White Sox on June 3, a game he had to exit early due to back spasms.

Prior to being placed on the DL, Fukudome appeared in 24 games for the White Sox this season. Over his 41 at-bats, the 35-year-old only mustered a line of .171/.294/.195 with one extra-base hit and four RBIs.

Danks next appearance with the White Sox will mark his major league debut. The 25-year-old, who’s spent the past three seasons playing for the White Sox Triple-A affiliate, has posted a line of .302/.419/.516 with eight home runs, 15 doubles and 28 RBIs this season. Over his five years in the minors Danks has maintained a career line of .263/.350/.422.
