CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox recalled right-handed pitcher Michael Ynoa from Double-A Birmingham and put outfielder Adam Eaton on the paternity list before their game against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.

Eaton left the team on Saturday, when his wife Katie gave birth to their first child, Brayden. Manager Robin Ventura said he expects Eaton to join the White Sox on their trip to Minnesota on Sunday. The White Sox play the Twins in their home opener on Monday.

Eaton is off to a strong start at the plate, going 9 for 20 with a double, triple and two runs scored in five games.

Ynoa has yet to pitch in the majors and threw one scoreless inning in Double-A. He went 0-2 with a 2.61 ERA, six saves and 40 strikeouts in 38 innings with Class A Winston-Salem last season. The White Sox acquired Ynoa from Oakland in 2014.

“I’m still in shock,” Ynoa said. “I’m happy to be here and thanks to the White Sox for giving me this opportunity.”
