White Sox lefthander Carlos Rodon has been placed on the disabled list after slipping in the dugout and injuring his wrist, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rodon lost his balance climbing the dugout steps before Friday’s game against the Braves in Chicago and landed on his throwing hand. He is expected to miss at least his first start after the All-Star break. The White Sox recalled pitcher Tommy Kahnle in a corresponding move.

“I’m not going to lie, I was a little embarrassed,” Rodon told the Tribune’s Chris Kuc. “I was like, ‘I hope no one saw that.’”

"I caught myself with my left hand and it didn't work out too well for me."

Rodon, 23 and a former first-round pick, is 2–7 with a 4.50 ERA in 16 starts.
