Matt Lindstrom is finally back on the White Sox active roster.

Lindstrom was reinstated from the disabled list ahead of Tuesday night's game with the Giants in San Francisco. This after a five-game rehab stint with Triple-A Charlotte.

The right-hander had been on the disabled list since May 20 after suffering an ankle injury that required surgery on May 23.

Lindstrom's absence coincided with a rough few months for the White Sox bullpen. The relief corps has a 4.45 ERA on the season.

Lindstrom made 19 appearances before his DL stay, posting a 3.32 ERA and recording six saves in 19 innings.

Lindstrom takes the roster spot of Eric Surkamp, who team team optioned to Charlotte after Sunday's game.
