Not exactly a triumphant return for White Sox catcher Welington Castillo. He just finished off his 80-game PED suspension only to be placed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation. He apparently did that while playing in rehab games with Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox signed Castillo last December and had planned on him being their starting catcher all year. He hit .267/.309/.466 with six home runs and 15 RBI in 123 plate appearances before his suspension kicked in back in May.

With Castillo out, Omar Narvaez and Kevan Smith will continue to share time behind the plate on the South Side.
