CHICAGO – Andruw Jones was a late scratch Wednesday leading to some speculation in the press box that he might have been released.
Jones was going to play right field while Carlos Quentin moved to designated hitter for the night, but it was a sore back that will force him to sit. Quentin will now play right field.
The move forced another lineup change. Instead of playing at third base, Dayan Viciedo was moved to the DH spot, the first time he has been at the DH spot all season. Omar Vizquel was inserted into the lineup at third base, batting eighth.
Instead of simply moving to the DH spot to replace the vacancy there, Vizquel will move to the field so the White Sox can utilize his defense. So much for a night of rest.
