(TSX / STATS) -- The Chicago White Sox recalled right-hander Lucas Giolito from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday and optioned right-hander Brad Goldberg.

Giolito, who was acquired along with right-handers Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning in the deal that sent center fielder Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals over the winter, is getting his first chance to impress his new major league club after going 6-10 with a 4.48 ERA in 24 starts for Charlotte.

The 23-year-old former first-round pick went 3-1 with a 1.71 ERA in his last five starts for Charlotte and will start for the White Sox on Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins.

Giolito went 0-1 with a 6.75 in six games -- four starts -- for Washington last season.
