Chicago White Sox RP Matt Purke was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte Friday, May 13, and SP John Danks was released.
Fantasy Tip: Purke is a former mega-prospect that was a first-round pick in 2009 before he failed to sign and went to college. When he came out, he slipped to the third round and has had mixed results. The team has used primarily out of the bullpen this year, which trumps his fantasy prowess for now.
