CHICAGO (CBS) Slumping outfielder Carlos Quentin is out of the White Sox lineup tonight against the Minnesota Twins.
Mark Teahen will play right field and bat eighth in place of Quentin. Omar Vizquel will play third base and bat second in place of Brent Morel.
Manager Ozzie Guillen also shifted the middle of his batting order, moving Paul Konerko up to third in the lineup with designated hitter Adam Dunn batting cleanup. Many have criticized Guillen’s insistence in batting Dunn behind Konerko, arguing that the struggling lefty would see better pitches with Konerko batting behind him.
Here is the rest of the lineup against the Twins:
Juan Pierre – LF
Omar Vizquel – 3B
Paul Konerko – 1B
Adam Dunn – DH
Alex Rios – CF
A.J. Pierzynski – C
Alexei Ramirez – SS
Mark Teahen – RF
Gordon Beckham – 2B
Phil Humber – P
