CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Andrew Vaughn on the 10-day injured list Thursday because of a bruised right hand.

Vaughn has not played since he was struck by a pitch from Los Angeles Angels right-hander Mike Mayers on Friday. He is batting .283 with four home runs and a team-leading 12 RBIs in 16 games. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 amateur draft, Vaughn hit .235 with 15 homers and 48 RBIs as a rookie last season.

The White Sox also recalled infielder Danny Mendick from Triple-A Charlotte.

Chicago was tied for second in the AL Central with Cleveland through Wednesday at 11-13. The White Sox, who have won three straight, open a three-game series at Boston on Friday.
