Today’s News

This Afternoon’s Game

White Sox vs. Angels at Camelback Ranch-Glendale (3:05 p.m., CT). Probable starters: LHP John Danks for the Sox, LHP Hector Santiago for LA.

Yesterday’s Highlights

Just hours before yesterday’s game vs. the Angels in Tempe, we posted a picture on the blog showing Adam LaRoche working out in the White Sox weight room. Well, it seems like his efforts there have paid off. In the fourth inning, Adam launched a grand slam (click on link below), his first homer of the spring, and added another RBI with a sac fly as the Sox went on to win, 7-6, on a 14-hit attack…LaRoche wasn’t the only standout against the Halos. Leadoff man Micah Johnson went 3-4 with three singles, drove in a run and scored twice. He’s now hitting .455 in Cactus League play…Melky Cabrera also knocked out three singles in three at bats and is now hitting .316…Tyler Saladino went 2-4 with a run scored and Courtney Hawkins doubled in a run. Hawkins continues to impress. He’s batting at a .450 clip…Starter Brad Penny got credit for the win. He went 3.2 IP, allowing a lone run…Matt Albers earned the save with a scoreless ninth that featured a pair of strikeouts. He now has a five-inning scoreless streak.

Quote of the Day

Chris Sale on his rehab from the foot injury and expected return to the rotation:

“I’ve never really gone through anything like this before, so I didn’t know what the timetable would be or was projected to be. I just show up every day and try to get it better.”
