CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox third baseman Orlando Hudson will make his second consecutive start at third base against the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.

The 34-year-old Hudson had never played third base in the majors prior to Tuesday, but he hasn’t had any troubles there so far. He even made a couple difficult plays in Wednesday’s win.

“He looked fine,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said on Thursday. “He made some tough plays. The game always finds you quick when you go in there. It didn’t take long for him to get a slower roller, one to his left. He made the plays without any problems.”

Philip Humber (1-2, 5.31) will star for the White Sox, and Cole DeVries will make his major league debut for the Twins on Thursday.

Here’s a look at the White Sox’s entire lineup:


1. Alejandro De Aza – CF

2. Gordon Beckham – 2B

3. Adam Dunn – DH

4. Paul Konerko – 1B

5. Alex Rios – RF

6. A.J. Pierzynski – C

7. Dayan Viciedo – LF

8. Alexei Ramirez – SS

9. Orlando Hudson – 3B
