Zavala was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Friday's game against the Indians, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Zavala made his major-league debut Sunday, and despite taking the collar (0-for-4), he was finally able to nab his first hit Friday night. This move opens up a roster spot for Welington Castillo, who's eligible to come off the 7-day injured list Saturday.
Zavala started and went 0-for-5 in Sunday's 7-0 loss to the Twins.
Zavala made his major-league debut Sunday after he was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday. He's filling in while Welington Castillo (head) is on the injured list.
Zavala was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Welington Castillo (head) was placed on the injured list, so Zavala was summoned to serve as the backup catcher in the short term. He was hitting .218/.253/.506 with six home runs and a 36.3 percent strikeout rate in 21 games at Triple-A. This will be Zavala's first taste of the majors.
Zavala (wrist) is expected to rejoin Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Zavala has been sidelined since April 24 with left wrist inflammation. Prior to landing on the shelf, the backstop was hitting .203/.230/.458 with three homers in 14 games for the Knights.
Zavala was placed on the 7-day injured list Wednesday with left wrist inflammation, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The move is retroactive to Wednesday, so Zavala will be eligible to return in six days, should he prove ready. Prior to landing on the shelf, the backstop compiled a lackluster .203/.230/.458 slash line with three homers in 14 games with Triple-A Charlotte.
Zavala was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte.
The expectation is that Zavala will be the White Sox's No. 3 catcher this year, playing at Triple-A until an injury opens up playing time on the big-league roster.
Zavala (quadriceps) is available off the bench for Saturday's Cactus League game against the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Zavala has been limited to just three at-bats this spring while tending to the strained left quad. It's unclear if the White Sox plan on using him Saturday, but the team's decision to make him available suggests that there's no longer much concern about the injury. Zavala is expected to open the upcoming season at Triple-A Charlotte.
Zavala (quad strain) hopes to return to action this weekend, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
He suffered the injury in the first Cactus League game of the season and has yet to return, but it sounds like that could happen this weekend. Zavala is likely ticketed for Triple-A to start the season, but is the third catcher on the organizational depth chart, so it is quite possible that he makes his big-league debut this season.
Zavala hasn't played since the first game of spring due to a strained left quad, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Zavala went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in the game but unfortunately has been unable to retake the field. The 25-year-old hopes to return to action for the White Sox sometime next week.
Zavala's contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
Zavala was added to the White Sox's 40-man roster for protection ahead of the Rule 5 draft. He split time between Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham in 2018, hitting a combined .258/.317/.418 with 13 homers across 104 games. The 25-year-old backstop will likely head back to Triple-A to begin the 2019 season after struggling during his first stint with the Knights (.243/.267/.359 across 48 games).
Zavala (undisclosed) was reinstated from the minor-league disabled list Saturday, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
Zavala is good to go after recovering from an undisclosed injury; he'd been on the shelf since July 16. He's batting .227 with four extra-base hits and six RBI through 17 games at Triple-A Charlotte in 2018.
Zavala was placed on the 7-day disabled list Monday at Triple-A Charlotte with an undisclosed injury.
Zavala hasn't played since Friday due to the injury and will be replaced on the active roster by fellow catcher Brett Austin (undisclosed), who was activated from the DL in a corresponding move. Over 303 plate appearances between Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham this season, Zavala has slashed .260/.337/.426 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.
Zavala was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Zavala will get his first taste of the Triple-A level after playing in 56 games for Double-A Birmingham in 2018. The catcher has hit .271/.358/.472 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI this year, including a recent 4-for-4 showing against Chattanooga last week. Don't expect to see Zavala in the big leagues at any point this season, but he can start to make his case for the 2019 campaign over the next couple months.
Zavala (wrist) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
Zavala will look to continue his solid start at Double-A Birmingham after returning to health. He's already collected 15 extra-base hits and 26 RBI through 38 games.
Zavala was placed on the disabled list Monday due to a wrist injury, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Zavala has been bothered with an unrelenting wrist injury, although he isn't expected to miss a significant amount of time. The 24-year-old is off to a hot start at Double-A Birmingham, smashing 10 home runs and driving in 26 runs over 38 games.
The White Sox reassigned Zavala to minor-league camp Friday.
Zavala earned a non-roster invitation to spring training after slashing .282/.353/.499 with 21 home runs in 387 at-bats between Low-A Kannapolis and High-A Winston-Salem in 2017. Double-A Birmingham seems like the likely destination for the 24-year-old this season.
