Charlie Haeger, Come On Down

Well, it's official. Jose Contreras has been placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to May 4, meaning he will likely miss two starts while getting daily massages on his sore back by fine Asian women who speak little to no English. Or by head trainer Herm Schneider, which wouldn't be nearly as fun. Either way, massages are never a bad thing so I hope Contreras enjoys himself.

In the meantime, Charlie Haeger is coming up from Triple A Charlotte to show what he can do, which has been quite impressive with the Knights (3-0, 0.68). As I mentioned yesterday, as disturbing as Contreras' sore back is, it may actually be interesting to watch a true knuckleballer on the South Side for a minute. I don't think the White Sox have had one of those since Charlie Hough.
