The Chicago White Sox put second baseman Nick Madrigal on the 60-day injured list Thursday with a torn hamstring.

Season-ending surgery is a possibility, general manager Rick Hahn said. An MRI revealed a complete tear of one tendon and a partial tear in another.

Madrigal, 24, suffered the injury in the seventh inning Wednesday night trying to leg out a slow roller. He limped past first before dropping to his knees.

The White Sox recalled outfielder Brian Goodwin from Triple-A Charlotte to take Madrigal's spot on the roster.

Madrigal was the team-leader in hits with 61. He is hitting .305/.349/.425 with 10 doubles, four triples, two home runs, 21 RBIs and 30 runs scored in 54 games.

Goodwin, 30, is hitting .244 with three home runs, 11 RBIs and 12 runs scored in 24 games with Charlotte after agreeing to terms with the White Sox on a minor-league contract on May 4.
