Sox to reconsider rotation after rain out

CLEVELAND – With Saturday’s game against the Indians postponed because of rain, Edwin Jackson’s start will be moved to Sunday.

After that, anything goes. With Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said he will submit a schedule Sunday as to how the other starters line up behind Jackson.

Phil Humber was expected to pitch Sunday, with Mark Buehrle, Jake Peavy and John Danks starting against the Tigers in that order during the following series. That order could potentially change.

“Right now we’ll play it by ear because heck, it could rain tomorrow,” Cooper said. “Sometime tomorrow we’ll figure out what changes if any after that.”

Cooper was asked that with a six-man rotation does it complicate things to add in Saturday’s unexpected off day?

“Listen, we’ll do what we have to do,” Cooper said. “We haven’t skipped a beat in any way so far. I don’t know what the record is or all the other numbers, but I think it’s been good and we’ll just have to deal with it for another day. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.”

Manager Ozzie Guillen said he expects the game to be rescheduled as a day-night doubleheader when the White Sox return to Cleveland Sept. 20-22. The Indians are already making up a prior postponed game against the Mariners on Sept. 19, the same day the White Sox are off.
