KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chicago White Sox placed shortstop Tim Anderson on the injured list with a strained right groin and recalled catcher Yermin Mercedes from their taxi squad before Saturday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals. Anderson had two of the White Sox’s four hits before leaving in the seventh inning Friday night with a sore hip. Leury Garcia started at shortstop and was batting seventh Saturday night. Anderson was hitting .333 through the first seven games after leading the majors with a .335 average last season.
