ChiSox reinstate Pena, request waiver for reliever's release

CBSSports.com wire reports

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have reinstated right-hander reliever Tony Pena from the 60-day disabled list and requested waivers for his unconditional release.

The 29-year-old Pena was 1-1 with a 6.20 ERA in 17 appearances before season-ending surgery Aug. 31 to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Acquired from Arizona in July 2009, he was 7-6 with a 4.93 ERA overall for Chicago.

Chicago also outrighted right-handed pitchers Kyle Cofield, Josh Kinney and Shane Lindsay and left-hander Leyson Septimo to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

Kinney had a 6.62 ERA over 13 games with the White Sox this season, while Lindsay made four relief appearances. Septimo, claimed from Arizona, made 22 relief appearances for Double-A Birmingham, and Cofield spent most of the season with that club.
