Pre-Game Reading Material:

Latest News

  • Carlos Carrasco has been recalled from Columbus to serve as a longman in case one is needed over the next couple days. Preston Guilmet has been sent down to room for Carrasco on the 25-man roster.
  • The White Sox have traded Alex Rios to the Rangers for a PTBNL which has already apparently been named. Assuming Leury Garcia.passes through waivers (Houston is the only one who can block the trade), then he'll go to Chicago. The White Sox get out from under most of the $17M owed Rios through 2014, and the Rangers get a replacement for the suspended Nelson Cruz.
