CINCINNATI – Prior to tonight’s game at Cincinnati, the Chicago White Sox announced the following three roster moves:

Purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Garrett Crochet (CROW-shay) from the Schaumburg training facility;

Placed right-hander Evan Marshall on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to September 15) with right shoulder inflammation;

Designated right-handed pitcher Ian Hamilton for assignment.

Crochet, 21, was selected by the White Sox in the first round (11th overall) of the 2020 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Tennessee. He is rated by MLBPipeline.com as the No. 4 prospect in the White Sox organization and No. 96 overall.

Crochet, 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, made one start in his junior season with Tennessee, tossing 3.2 scoreless IP with six strikeouts, before the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was named a 2020 Baseball America Preseason First Team All-American and Perfect Game Preseason Third Team All-American.

Crochet, who will wear uniform No. 45, is the first player from the 2020 draft to be selected to the majors.

Marshall, 30, is 2-1 with a 2.49 ERA (6 ER/21.2 IP), eight holds, 29 strikeouts and a .205 (17-80) opponents average over 22 relief appearances this season. He is tied for eighth in strikeouts among American League relievers.

Hamilton, 25, made four relief appearances with the White Sox, posting a 4.50 ERA (2 ER/4.0 IP) and four strikeouts.

Following the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster remains at 40.
