White Sox rotation vs. Red Sox takes shape

CHICAGO -- With Saturday’s rainout in Cleveland altering the Chicago White Sox's starting rotation, the team still hasn’t announced their pitching plans through the weekend against the Boston Red Sox.

The White Sox have said that Gavin Floyd will start in Friday’s series opener against Boston, but Saturday and Sunday are still undecided.

“I don't even know who's pitching tomorrow,” manager Ozzie Guillen said when asked about the Red Sox series. “I swear to God. It's … [John] Danks [on Wednesday]. After that, no, because we have a day off and after the day off we're going to figure it out. I'll have a better idea tomorrow who's pitching. I know [Phil] Humber's out there somewhere.

There are strong indications that Edwin Jackson will get the start on Saturday, or at least that’s what the Red Sox are planning on. The lack of a rotation plan has put the Red Sox’s preparation for the series in limbo.

Humber, who is available out of the bullpen in case of emergency, could pitch Sunday, which would give the White Sox a rotation of three consecutive right-handers against the Red Sox.
