Lefty Pedro Hernandez will start Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, the White Sox made official prior to Tuesday's game. Hernandez will take Gavin Floyd's turn in the rotation, as the right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier today.
Hernandez saw success with Double-A Birmingham, posting a 2.75 ERA with 48 strikeouts, 19 walks and seven home runs allowed in 68 23 innings. In his six-year minor-league career, Hernandez has a 3.42 ERA in 107 games, 67 of which were starts.
The White Sox acquired Hernandez, along with righty Simon Castro, from San Diego in exchange for Carlos Quentin last December.
