After going most of spring training battling with Chris Sale to be the Chicago White Sox’s closer, Matt Thornton got the official nod from manager Ozzie Guillen. But it’s business as usual for Thornton, even after the announcement.

“I’m not going to change a thing,” Thornton told The Score’s Chris Rongey. “I’m the same guy that I was, I’m going to do the same thing I’ve always done and continue to work hard and prepare myself and continue to try and attack hitters and execute pitches.”

As the team’s setup man last season, Thornton had a 2.67 ERA with 81 strikeout and eight saves in 60.2 innings pitched.

The White Sox open the regular season on April 1, in Cleveland.
