    Chicago White Sox right-hander Phil Humber is going on the 15-day disabled list after getting struck in the face by a line drive.

    The 28-year-old was removed in the second inning of Thursday night's 4-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians after Kosuke Fukudome's line drive hit Humber just above his right eye, bruising his face.

    Humber is 8-8 with a 3.63 ERA in 23 games in 21 starts.

    Chicago purchased the contract of right-hander Josh Kinney from Triple-A Charlotte to take Humber's roster spot Friday.
