CHICAGO -- Prior to tonight's game vs. Minnesota, the Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Scott Podsednik on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to Aug. 13) with a strained left adductor and purchased the contract of outfielder Brian Anderson from Class AAA Charlotte.

Anderson, 23, was hitting .295 (124-421) with 23 doubles, 15 home runs and 54 RBI in 111 games with Charlotte. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder ranked second on the Knights in average, home runs and RBI at the time of the promotion.

Anderson, who was selected in the first round (15th overall) of the June 2003 First-Year Player Draft, was ranked by Baseball America as the No. 1 Prospect and Best Defensive Outfielder in the White Sox organization entering the 2005 season.

Podsednik has batted .282 (108-383) with 19 RBI and a Major League-leading 54 stolen bases in 99 games with the Sox. His 54 stolen bases are 35 more than Willie Harris' team-high 19 in 2004. Podsednik, who stole 22 consecutive bases from June 5-July 22, also leads the American League with 31 infield hits and 13 bunt hits.

The White Sox 40-man roster is now at 40.
