Today’s News

On to Chicago

The White Sox’s Opening Day roster was revealed after today’s game in Milwaukee. Here are the 25 players headed to Chicago for Monday’s opener:

Pitchers (12) — Dylan Axelrod, Jesse Crain, Gavin Floyd, Nate Jones, Matt Lindstrom, Jake Peavy, Jose Quintana, Addison Reed, Chris Sale, Hector Santiago, Matt Thornton, Donnie Veal.

Catchers (2) — Tyler Flowers, Hector Gimenez

Infielders (7) — Gordon Beckham, Adam Dunn, Conor Gillaspie, Jeff Keppinger, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez, Angel Sanchez.

Outfielders (4) — Alejandro De Aza, Alex Rios, Dayan Viciedo, Dewayne Wise.

To get down to 25, the Sox made the following six roster moves:

* Optioned RHP Brian Omogrosso to Class AAA Charlotte

* Reassigned C Bryan Anderson, INF Josh Bell, RHP Jeff Gray, RHP Ramon Troncoso and INF Steve Tolleson in minor-league camp.

Preseason is a Wrap

The Sox completed the preseason by splitting the two-game series with the Brewers at Miller Park.

This afternoon, the Sox dropped a 5-4 decision. Dunn smashed a solo homer and Beckham, Wise and Brandon Short each drove in a run.

The Sox won last night by a 7-2 score, highlighted by Dunn’s 3-3, one RBI night and Santiago’s three perfect innings that included five strikeouts. Crain, Veal, Jones, Thornton and Reed each pitched an inning of scoreless relief.

Happy 24th

Happy Birthday to our Opening Day starter. Sale is celebrating No. 24 today.

Was at both games. We had lead until our subs let their subs back into the game. Both games very enjoyable to watch. Where is our retractable roof?
