The Chicago White Sox selected the contract of Clint Frazier from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday and designated fellow outfielder Jake Marisnick for assignment.

The White Sox also placed right-hander Mike Clevinger on the 15-day injured list with right wrist inflammation, retroactive to Thursday.

Frazier, 28, is hitting .375 with seven home runs, 13 RBIs and 13 runs in 16 games with Charlotte. He signed a minor league contract on April 28 after his release from the Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate.

A first-round pick by Cleveland in the 2013 draft, Frazier has appeared in 247 games with the New York Yankees (2017-22) and Chicago Cubs. He has a career average of .238 with 29 home runs, 98 RBIs and 104 runs scored.

Marisnick, 32, signed a free-agent deal with the White Sox in January and hit .264 in 30 games with Charlotte before being called up on May 10. He appeared in nine games for the White Sox, going hitless in two at-bats but scoring a run.

Marisnick has appeared in 840 career games with the Miami Marlins (2013-14), Houston Astros (2014-19), New York Mets (2020), Cubs (2021), San Diego Padres (2021) and Pittsburgh Pirates (2022). He has a career .228 average with 63 homers, 213 RBIs and 79 stolen bases.

Clevinger, 32, is 3-3 with a 4.56 ERA and 40 strikeouts in nine starts in his first season with Chicago.

He is 54-33 with a 3.46 ERA in 137 games (123 starts) with the Cleveland organization (2016-20), San Diego Padres (2020, 2022) and White Sox.

The White Sox will make a corresponding move to replace Clevinger prior to Monday night's series opener against the host Cleveland Guardians.
