Tommy John for White Sox reliever Threets

Erick Threets
Lefty reliever Erick Threets tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his arm during Friday's game and will have to undergo Tommy John ligament replacement surgery, reports the Chicago Tribune. The procedure has a recovery time of 12-18 months.

Threets had arrived back in Chicago on Wednesday, one of the reinforcements when relievers J.J. Putz and Matt Thornton were put on the DL. Threets had just finished rehabbing a case of turf toe. In 12 appearances with the White Sox this season, Threets did not allow an earned run.

"Very, very sad moment," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "He was throwing the ball very well."

Chicago called up Carlos Torres from Triple-A Charlotte to take Threets' roster spot.

White Sox put Putz, Thornton on DL

Bobby Jenks
Not long ago, everyone was calling for Bobby Jenks to be deposed as White Sox closer. After all, Chicago had options from the right (J.J. Putz) and left (Matt Thornton) sides that were both pitching incredibly well.

How quickly things can change. On Wednesday, both Putz and Thornton were put on the disabled list, and the White Sox are feeling lucky to have Jenks (pictured) around.

Thornton has an elbow problem and Putz, who came out of Tuesday's game after just three pitches, a knee problem. Both have had MRI exams that showed no damage, but both need time and are unavailable. The Chicago bullpen, which also saw Tony Pena throw seven innings in a spot start Saturday, is in dire straits.

Coming up as reinforcements are left-hander Erick Threets, who is coming back from a DL stint due to turf toe, and rookie right-hander Lucas Harrell, whose only major-league appearance was a successful start on July 30.

"I need some guys that can go out there," manager Ozzie Guillen told reporters after Tuesday's game. "I'm not saying we're in trouble, but I think everyone in the bullpen has to pick it up a notch for at least the next seven days ... We'll figure it out."
