The White Sox have announced they will bring in designated outfielder Lastings Milledge, and are buying the minor-league contract of pitcher Jeff Gray.
After playing an exhibition game against Class A Winston-Salem, Ozzie Guillen has set his team’s roster to fit the 25-man limit for Opening Day.
Seven earned runs and and 4 walks in Thursday’s 8-7 White Sox loss to the Cubs, likely aren’t going to cost Phil Humber a chance at breaking camp as the team’s 5th starter. Barring an incredible recover by Jake Peavy or an acquisition of some kind (both highly unlikely), Humber will still be the guy.
Lastings Milledge knows what it feels like to have high expectations. He’s “been all over” as he told Laurence Holmes about his pursuit of a position on the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox’s power at bat has been proven Thursday in their split-squad game against the Rockies. Chicago doubled Colorado’s score with their 16 hits.
John Danks didn’t allow the Dodgers to score while he was on the mound Sunday. Los Angeles was only able to score one run in the seventh inning while the Sox kept the runs coming.
Friday was the first meeting of the Cubs and White Sox to spark this season’s rivalry and the Southside struggled against Ryan Dempster. The Cubs held a 3-0 lead through the ninth inning before the White Sox could put some runs on the board.
