Pelfrey has been called up to make a spot start for the injured James Shields (lat) on Saturday, J.J. Stankevitz of CSN Chicago reports.

The White Sox already had an extremely thin rotation thanks to an injury to Carlos Rodon, and the fact that they are turning to Pelfrey here shows their desperation. Pelfrey has posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over the past four seasons, and he should be seen as purely an innings eater at best in Chicago.
