Sox's Humber to return on Tuesday
The bad news was Gavin Floyd was replacing Humber on the disabled list.
Now the question is which Humber will be coming back? Humber can lessen the blow Floyd's injury if he can find some consistency on the mound.
Humber’s been as good as a pitcher can be (throwing a perfect game) and nearly as bad as a manager will allow (he’s had two starts in which he’s allowed eight or more runs).
While the White Sox won’t be expecting another perfect game, they are hopeful Humber can keep them in games. He has posted six starts during which he has allowed four runs or more and six starts in which he has allowed three runs or less.
Here’s a look at the White Sox’s lineup against the Red Sox:
1. Alejandro De Aza, CF
2. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
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. Gordon Beckham, 2B
