Roster Moves

The White Sox optioned RHP Erik Johnson to Class AAA Charlotte and reassigned RHP Tyler Danish and INF-OF Steve Lombardozzi to minor-league camp.

Quote of the Day

With Johnson headed to Charlotte, pitching coach Don Cooper is looking for today’s starting pitcher to fit into the starting rotation:

“Latos is now going to be given the real opportunity to see if he can take it and grab it and run with it.”

Looking to win a role on a strong Sox pitching staff, Scott Carroll was superb yesterday vs. the Tribe as he allowed just two hits in three scoreless innings in a starting role.
