CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox will not alter their starting rotation in the face of Friday night’s postponement due to expected cold temperatures.

Jake Peavy, who was scheduled to start Friday, will now move to Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, which is a 2:05 p.m. start. Gavin Floyd, who was scheduled to pitch Saturday, will be moved to Sunday’s game.


The Minnesota Twins are also pushing back their rotation with Vance Worley moving back to Saturday and Scott Diamond moving to Sunday.

The series is also expected to mark the return of Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, who was hospitalized in Washington D.C. last week with diverticulitis. He missed the entire 10-game road trip as bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen assumed his duties.

The team has not announced when Friday night's game will be rescheduled. The Twins have two more visits to U.S. Cellular Field this season, one in August and another in September.
