Sox's Hudson to start at 3B

CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox third baseman Orlando Hudson will make his first start for his new club against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

Hudson arrived to the team Tuesday after being released by the San Diego Padres last week and made his White Sox’s debut in the eighth inning when he replaced Eduardo Escobar at third base. It was Hudson’s first game at third base in the majors. He has played 1,268 games at second base.

Hudson was hit one groundball Tuesday and delivered a high throw to first baseman Paul Konerko, who was able to reach for the ball and record the out. Hudson also singled in his lone at-bat and scored for the White Sox.

Chris Sale (4-2, 2.91) will start for the White Sox and will be countered by Twins pitcher Scott Diamond (3-0, 1.40). Here’s a look at the White Sox’s entire lineup:

1. Alejandro De Aza – CF
