White Sox release Charlie Leesman

USA TODAY Sports

The White Sox have granted left-hander Charlie Leesman his unconditional release.

The Chicago White have requested release waivers for left-hander Charlie Leesman, a move that will grant the southpaw his unconditional release, according to Mark Gonzalez of The Chicago Tribune.

The White Sox designated Leesman for assignment earlier this week to make room on the 40-man roster for infielder Tyler Green. Chicago needed to add Greene with second baseman Gordon Beckham hitting the disabled list with a broken hamate bone in his hand.

The White Sox selected Leesman in the 11th round of the 2008 MLB Draft. Last season, the southpaw maintained an ERA of 2.47 with a strikeout-to-walk ratio (SO/BB) of 1.98 over 26 starts for Chicago's Triple-A affiliate. He had spent the majority of the previous two seasons in Double-A, maintaining a combined ERA of 3.63 over 38 starts with 1.59 SO/BB.

The 26-year-old owns a career ERA of 3.37 with 1.67 SO/BB over five seasons in the minors.
