Charlie Tilson’s time in the majors was short-lived this season. The White Sox acquired him from the Cardinals in the Zach Duke trade on Sunday and the club called him up to the majors to debut on Tuesday.

Tilson had a single in two at-bats against the Tigers, but suffered an injury trying to catch a fly ball in the fifth inning. He’s been diagnosed with a torn left hamstring and will undergo surgery on Thursday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. He’ll miss the rest of the season.

I guess you can say that this injury is… Charlie Tilson’s war.

Following the trade, MLB Pipeline rated Tilson the fifth-best prospect in the White Sox system. He hit .282/.345/.407 with 28 extra-base hits, 34 RBI, 53 runs scored, and 15 stolen bases in 395 plate appearances at Triple-A Memphis prior to the trade.
