WHITE SOXWinston-Salem A
The Dash made an unexpected roster addition Friday morning prior to their Carolina League playoff game with Kinston, activating outfielder Brandon Short off the disabled list. Short had been out for nearly a month with a strained oblique and wasnt expected to be available for this series.
He was pressed into action, however, when Nick Ciolli injured his back in the series opener on Wednesday night. Ciolli, who sat out Game Two on Thursday, was placed on the seven-day disabled list.
Short, a mid-season and year-end Carolina League All-Star, suffered the injury swinging at a pitch on August 18 against Salem. After spending a week on the active roster but not playing, he was placed on the D.L. In the regular season, Short hit .316 with 15 home runs, 31 doubles, five triples, 79 RBI, and 77 runs scored.
The Dash will go for the series sweep Friday night.
