NEW YORK (AP) The Chicago White Sox have recalled infielder Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte to take the roster spot of recently traded second baseman Gordon Beckham.

Sanchez is scheduled to start at second base and bat second for Chicago on Friday night in the opener of a series at the New York Yankees.

Beckham was traded to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday for a player to be named or cash.

Manager Robin Ventura says Sanchez has shown the potential to play at the major league level. He was batting .293 with seven homers, 57 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 110 games for Charlotte.
