CHICAGO (AP) - The White Sox placed right-hander Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his left knee and purchased the contract of left-hander Aaron Poreda from Double-A Birmingham on Tuesday.

Colon is 3-6 with a 4.23 ERA in 11 starts this season. He tied a career-high by allowing four home runs in a loss to Cleveland on Sunday, and has allowed 12 homers in 11 starts this season.

The 22-year-old Poreda was the White Sox’s first-round draft pick in 2007. Although he will work from the bullpen, Poreda was 5-4 with a 2.38 ERA in 11 starts with Birmingham.

Despite making only 36 appearances in the last three seasons, mainly because of injuries, Colon agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract with Chicago in the offseason.
