Play Ball! Pale Hose Face Angels in Tempe as Their Cactus League Season Begins
The 2010 “new look” White Sox will officially be unveiled today as the South Siders travel to nearby Tempe to face the LA Angels of Anaheim in Game 1 of spring training.
Many of the regulars will be starting with a couple of top prospects rounding out the starting lineup. Juan Pierre will be in left, Andruw Jones in center (Alex Rios is nursing a sore shoulder) and Jordan Danks in right. Jordan will be backing up big brother John, who gets the start and is scheduled to pitch two innings.
Dayan Viciedo, a natural third baseman, gets the starting nod at first as the Sox want to see if he can make the switch to the other side of the infield. Gordon Beckham is set at second, Alexei Ramirez at short and Mark Teahen at third. A.J. Pierzynski will be behind the plate and Mark Kotsay the DH against Angel righty Joel Piniero.
I’m definitely ready.
