Covey spent less than a week in the minors, returning Saturday with Carson Fulmer (hamstring) landing on the injured list. Covey has had a rough time in the big leagues this season, recording a 6.99 ERA in 47.2 innings, though he owns an excellent 1.85 ERA in 24.1 frames for Charlotte.
Covey (1-7) allowed five runs on five hits and failed to retire a batter Sunday against the Twins. He was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after the game, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.
Covey was rocked in the first inning of his latest start, surrendering five runs on a pair of homers before being removed. After accruing a 6.99 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with 31 strikeouts over 47.2 innings with Chicago, he'll head back to Triple-A.
Covey (1-6) allowed five earned runs on six hits across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Marlins. He struck out seven and did not issue a walk.
Covey held the Marlins scoreless through three innings, but allowed four earned runs in the fourth inning -- capped by a two-run home run by Curtis Granderson. He did show some strong skills, with his seven punchouts backed by 14 called strikes and 12 swinging strikes. He threw 86 total pitches, his highest total since May 31. He should be fully stretched out for his next start -- currently scheduled for Sunday against Minnesota -- during which he'll look to improve on his 6.04 ERA and 1.51 WHIP.
Covey is listed as the White Sox's starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.
Covey was on track to re-enter the White Sox rotation last week during the team's series versus the Royals, but he was ultimately bypassed for the nod in favor of Ross Detwiler. After outperforming Detwiler while working in long relief behind him in Kansas City, Covey looks like he'll be rewarded with his first start since July 13. Over eight turns through the Chicago rotation this season, Covey has posted a 5.89 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 36.2 innings.
Covey could start Tuesday against the Marlins, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The White Sox went with Ross Detwiler in what was Covey's spot Thursday against the Royals, but the veteran allowed five runs while recording just seven outs.

Covey is no longer scheduled to start Thursday against the Royals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Covey was originally tabbed to start Thursday's series finale, but his struggles in two appearances since the All-Star break -- he's allowed seven runs across just 1.2 innings -- have opened the door for Ross Detwiler to get the ball instead. Covey's role moving forward remains up in the air.
Covey, who is scheduled to start Thursday, pitched an inning of relief in Tuesday's 11-0 loss to the Royals. He allowed one run on three hits.
Covey was torched in his last start, failing to get out of the first inning after giving up six runs to the Athletics, so the arm is fresh. The decision to use him Tuesday will not preclude him from making Thursday's start, per Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Covey allowed six runs on four hits with two walks over just two-thirds of an inning, suffering a loss against the Athletics on Saturday.
The 27-year-old's first start since June 5 because of a shoulder injury didn't go very well -- lasting just 32 pitches -- and he couldn't make it through the first inning. His only shorter outing of the season was a relief appearance in which he failed to record any outs April 1. Covey is 1-5 with a 5.92 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 38 innings across 10 appearances (eight starts). His turn in the rotation will come up again Thursday in Kansas City.

Covey (shoulder) will likely be activated to start Saturday's game against the A's, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
He has a 5.94 xFIP and almost as many walks (20) as strikeouts (22) through 37.1 innings this season, so there is not much fantasy appeal. Ross Detweiler will likely move to the bullpen upon Covey's activation.
Covey (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start Sunday at Triple-A Charlotte, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Covey has made two rehab outings with Charlotte and topped out at 52 pitches in the most recent appearance Monday.

The 27-year-old is set to throw a bullpen session during the All-Star break in Chicago, and if all goes well, he'll slot back into the White Sox rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

Covey (shoulder) threw 30-to-35 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Covey landed on the injured list June 9 with right shoulder inflammation but is nearing his return to facing live hitters.

Covey (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a side session Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Covey (shoulder) played catch Friday and expects to throw off a mound Saturday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Covey was placed on the injured list last week with shoulder inflammation that's been bothering him for a while. He'd been able to get himself ready every fifth day but eventually needed to shut down for a bit. "I feel much better now," Covey said. "I've had a few days off. We're taking it day by day." Covey is 1-4 with a 4.58 ERA in nine games (seven starts).
The White Sox placed Covey on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation.
According to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Covey has been contending with the sore shoulder for his last few starts, the most recent of which came June 5 in Washington. Covey indicated that a recent MRI revealed "nothing alarming," but he'll nonetheless require further evaluation when the team returns to Chicago on Monday. The White Sox will first require a replacement in the rotation for Covey either Monday or Tuesday against the Nationals.
Covey allowed two runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and a walk across five innings during a no-decision against the Nationals on Wednesday.
When he departed, the Nationals led 2-1, a lead they subsequently increased to three runs. However, the White Sox offense came back to tie the game, getting Covey off the hook.
