Danish, 23, is scheduled to start the second game of tonight’s doubleheader. Danish, who will wear uniform No. 60, is 1-3 with a 3.15 ERA (16 ER/45.2 IP) and 23 strikeouts over eight starts with the Knights this season. He has allowed two earned runs or less in six of his outings this season.

Minaya, 26, is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA (2 ER/14.2 IP), 11 strikeouts and a .208 (11-53) opponents average over 10 appearances with Charlotte in 2017. Minaya, who will wear uniform No. 37, was on Chicago’s disabled list from March 30-April 26 with a right abdominal strain suffered during spring training. He made his major-league debut with the White Sox in 2016, going 1-0 with 4.35 ERA (5 ER/10.1 IP) in 11 relief appearances.
