BALTIMORE (AP) Chicago White Sox closer David Robertson has been reinstated from the bereavement list after a three-day absence.

Robertson left the team Thursday following the death of his father-in-law.

The right-hander, who hasn't pitched since Wednesday, was available for Sunday's series finale against the Baltimore Orioles.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said, ''He'll be in there if we have a lead.''

Robertson has eight saves and a 0.87 ERA in 10 appearances for the first-place White Sox.

To make room for Robertson, the White Sox optioned right-hander Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Charlotte.
