GLENDALE, Ariz. -- After getting rained out Monday, the Chicago White Sox will play their only intrasquad game of the spring at the conclusion of Tuesday’s workout.
Originally scheduled for a seven-inning game, manager Robin Ventura hinted that a couple of more innings could be added after Monday’s scheduled 4½-inning game was called.
The highlight of the game figures to be the brief outing from right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who will make his first appearance in a White Sox uniform in a game setting.
Ventura will be a keen observer, but he will turn over the managing duties to Triple-A skipper Joel Skinner and Double-A manager Julio Vinas. Skinner appears to have the most major league ready team of the two. The game has been dubbed Shirts vs. Skins (for Skinner).
The lineup for the home Shirts: Micah Johnson, 2B; Emilio Bonifacio, CF; Melky Cabrera, LF; Adam LaRoche, 1B; Alexei Ramirez, SS; Matt Davidson 3B; Tyler Saladino, DH; Geovany Soto, C; Michael Taylor, RF.
