Friday, September 14, 2012
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have reshuffled their rotation to adjust for their rained-out game, deciding to start left-hander Francisco Liriano in Minnesota on Saturday against his former team.
Manager Robin Ventura said on Friday that lefty Jake Peavy will stay with his scheduled start on Sunday against the Twins. Rookie left-hander Jose Quintana will pitch on Monday in the makeup game in Chicago against the Detroit Tigers, postponed from Thursday because of the weather. All-Star right-hander Chris Sale was supposed to start that game, but he was bumped to Friday.
Righty Gavin Floyd will pitch on Tuesday, when the White Sox start a six-game road trip in Kansas City.
The White Sox recalled right-hander Jhan Marinez from Triple-A Charlotte before the game, giving them 18 pitchers on their active roster.
