Abreu, Garcia and New-Look Sox are Creating a Buzz
Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Here are two good examples of how the media is showing interest in the 2014 White Sox:
Friday and Saturday Pitching Schedule
The Sox open their Cactus League season on Friday at Camelback Ranch-Glendale against the Dodgers and host the Indians on Saturday. Here’s how the pitching will be set up.
Friday: Chris Sale, Eric Surkamp, Donnie Veal, Jake Petricka, Matt Lindstrom and a host of others.
Saturday: John Danks, Chris Beck, Omar Poveda, Scott Downs and others.
Brought Back by Popular Demand
Those 1983 “Winning Ugly” uniforms that were such a big hit with the Sox players and fans last year will be worn this season as alternate uniforms with a new “batterman” cap. They won’t be worn only on Sundays at home as they were for the most part in 2013, but rather anytime the players decide they want to wear them. See Photos of the Day.
Quote of the Day
Matt Davidson on the Sox wearing the ’83 throwback unis: “Awesome.”
Sox Note of Note
The Sox have claimed right-handed pitcher Maikel Cleto (Michael CLAY-toh) off waivers from the Kansas City Royals and have designated infielder Jake Elmore for assignment. Cleto, 24, split time last season between Class AAA Memphis in the Cardinals organization and Class AAA Omaha in the Royals system.
