The Chicago White Sox placed right-handed reliever Kelvin Herrera on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain ahead of Saturday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The move is retroactive to July 18.

Herrera, 29, is in his first season with the White Sox and is 3-3 with a 7.36 ERA in 38 appearances.

He split 2018 with Kansas City and the Washington Nationals, but his season ended in August after injuring his left foot and undergoing season-ending surgery.

Replacing Herrera on the roster is right-hander Jimmy Cordero, who was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

Cordero, who the White Sox claimed off waivers in July, has gone 3-1 with a 0.51 ERA in 13 relief appearances at Charlotte.
