CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza will be given a rare day off against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
De Aza has played in 69 of the White Sox’s 70 games this season. Only Adam Dunn, who has played in all 70 games, has played in more games than De Aza.
“It’s good to get a day off, but it’s also good to get a day off when there’s a game,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said prior to Saturday’s game. “Even though we had the day off [Thursday], it’s better for him to get it during a game just for your mind.”
De Aza is hitting .292 with 47 runs, 14 stolen bases and a .369 on-base percentage.
Here’s the White Sox’s lineup against the Brewers and their starter Randy Wolf (2-5, 5.11) on Saturday:
1. Brent Lillibridge, 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
