White Sox Designate Clevelan Santeliz For Assignment

The White Sox designated righty Clevelan Santeliz for assignment, according to a team press release.  The move created a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregory Infante, who was called up along with Alejandro de Aza and Tyler Flowers.

Santeliz, unfortunately, was designated on his 24th birthday.  The reliever has a 4.65 ERA, 8.8 K/9, 5.9 BB/9, and nine home runs allowed in 50.3 Triple A innings this year.  Heading into the season, Baseball America ranked Santeliz ninth among White Sox prospects.  He has a closer mentality and a fastball/slider combo that can be "eye-popping," but clearly has command issues.
