The White Sox recalled Jordan Danks to take Jake Peavy's place on the White Sox roster on Wednesday, a day after dealing the right-hander to Boston in a three-team trade that netted the team outfielder Avisail Garcia.

Outfielder Blake Tekotte was optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday to make room on the 25-man roster for Andre Rienzo, who started for the White Sox in place of Peavy Tuesday night in Cleveland.

Garcia will join Triple-A Charlotte, and general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday he'll only call up the 21-year-old if he can be guaranteed four at-bats a game. That'd likely mean the Sox would have to deal Alex Rios or Alejandro De Aza before Wednesday's 3 p.m. (CST) nonwaiver deadline.
