The Chicago White Sox will be without one of their starters for the next two weeks after placing lefty Carlos Rodon on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained wrist. 

Rodon, 23, sprained his wrist after slipping on the dugout steps while coming out for the national anthem on Friday evening. Talk about a freakish injury to send him to the shelf. 

The youngster has struggled in his first full season in the Majors, posting a 2-7 record with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 16 starts. Though, he was striking out a batter per inning at the time of the injury. 

With Rodon out, the White Sox have called up Tommy Kahnle to replace him on the 25-man roster.
