Jose Quintana was back to his own self today, allowing just one hit while striking out a pair in five scoreless innings…Maikel Cleto finished the game with 1.2 IP of scoreless ball…Conor Gillaspie doubled twice, Blake Tekotte doubled and singled and Alejandro De Aza joined them in the two-hit club with a pair of singles. De Aza is now hitting .410 this spring…Tekotte, Adam Eaton, Paul Konerko, Tyler Flowers and Leury Garcia each drove in a run.

Roster Moves

Prior to today’s game, the Sox made the following five roster moves: optioned OF Jordan Danks, 3B Matt Davidson and RHP Jake Petricka to Class AAA Charlotte; reassigned RHP Dylan Axelrod to minor-league camp; and requested waivers on RHP Mitchell Boggs for the purpose of granting his unconditional release. With the moves, the White Sox have 33 players remaining in major-league camp: 14 pitchers, three catchers, 11 infielders and five outfielders.  The Sox 40-man roster is at 39.

Quote of the Day

Robin on Eaton, who has reached base safely in 13 of his 16 games and is hitting .311 in Cactus League play:

You like the way he plays — he’s very aggressive. He has had a very good spring coming in and playing the outfield. Good arm, smart baseball player.”
