CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura will give Kosuke Fukudome his third start of the season on Wednesday.

Fukudome replaces Dayan Viciedo and will bat seventh. Fukudome has two hits in 11 at-bats (.182 average). Outside of his two starts, he’s made three pinch-hit appearances.

“This is a good time to get him in there and get him some at-bats,” Ventura said prior to Wednesday’s game. “He came in and had a good at-bat (Tuesday), but it's hard to give him one at-bat a week for him to get his timing and get in there.”

The White Sox will face Orioles right-handed starter Tommy Hunter (1-0, 2.55) on Wednesday. Here’s the entire White Sox lineup:

1. Alejandro De Aza, CF
2. Brent Morel, 3B
3. Adam Dunn, DH
4. Paul Konerko, 1B
5. A.J. Pierzynski, C
6. Alex Rios, RF
7. Kosuke Fukudome, LF
8. Alexei Ramirez, SS
9. Gordon Beckham, 2B
SP: Jake Peavy, RHP
