The White Sox have placed right-hander Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to Aug. 27) with a right elbow flexor strain and recalled right-hander Dylan Axelrod from Class AAA Charlotte.

Outfielder Alejandro De Aza was also sent to Charlotte for an injury rehab assignment.

Floyd left his last start on Aug. 26 against the Mariners after experiencing discomfort in his elbow.

Axelrod has gone 1-2 with a 5.63 ERA in 10 games over two stints with the White Sox this season.
