News: The Chicago White Sox have placed right-hander Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. The White Sox made the move Thursday before starting a series against the Minnesota Twins. Impact: The 27-year-old Putnam is one of several pitchers to take a crack at the closer role for the White Sox this season after Addison Reed was traded before the year started. Putnam is 3-2 with a 2.35 ERA and three saves in 42 appearances this season(STATS, 6:43pm)

News: Putnam was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with right shoulder inflammation, reports. Impact: Something looked amiss for Putnam during his appearance in the ninth inning Tuesday night, as he took the loss upon while allowing the game-winning run on two hits and two walks. An examination after the game likely revealed the shoulder issue, and now Putnam will effectively be removed from the running for the White Sox's closer gig. Putnam's placement on the disabled list clears the way for Jacob Petricka to settle in as manager Robin Ventura's preferred ninth-inning option, though Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could both still factor into the mix for saves.(RotoWire, )

News: Putnam stepped into a jam Saturday and recorded one out -- a strikeout of Jason Castro -- to record his third save of the season. Impact: Putnam made it two saves in as many nights. Jake Petricka had come on in the ninth inning, but he allowed two batters to reach base, which prompted the move to Putnam. The White Sox seem to be having a difficult time committing to a closer, but Putnam is solidly in the mix.(RotoWire, )

News: Putnam recorded his second save of the season Friday night versus the Astros, retiring the side in order while picking up two strikeouts in a 3-2 victory. Impact: The White Sox's closer situation is still in a state of flux, but Putnam seems to be solidly in the mix, especially after this effort. The 27-year-old hurler has been a solid performer out of the bullpen so far in 2014, but will likely need to harness his command in order to claim the closer role for himself.(RotoWire, )
