CHICAGO -- Prior to tonight's game vs. Los Angeles, the Chicago White Sox placed right-handed pitcher Jose Contreras on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 5) with sciatica (irritation of the sciatic nerve). A corresponding move will be made prior to tomorrow night's game.

Contreras, 34, is 5-0 with a 1.41 ERA (7 ER/44.2 IP) in six starts this season. He allowed one run over 7.1 IP in his last start on Thursday vs. Seattle, extending his major-league best winning streak to 13 games. Contreras, who was named the American League Pitcher of the Month for April, has gone 13-0 with a 1.80 ERA (21 ER/105.0 IP) over his last 14 regular-season starts.

The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder established career highs in victories (15) starts (32), IP (204.2) and strikeouts (154) in his first full season with the White Sox in 2005. Contreras went 11-2 with a 2.96 ERA (34 ER/103.1 IP) after the All-Star Break, the sixth-most victories by a Sox pitcher in the second half since 1970. He also earned AL Pitcher of the Month honors for September, going 6-0 with a 1.99 ERA (10 ER/45.1 IP).

Contreras went 3-1 with a 3.09 ERA (11 ER/32.0 IP) in four postseason starts with the White Sox last season, starting Game 1 of each series.
