Sox roster moves closer to Opening form
By Bruce Levine
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox pared down their spring roster to 31 on Tuesday, by re-assigning outfielder Jordan Danks, infielders Jim Gallagher, Dan Johnson and Tyler Saladino as well as catcher Josh Phegley to minor league camp.
Manager Robin Ventura named his starting rotation on Monday with John Danks getting the Opening Day assignment against the Texas Rangers on April 6. Ventura will take his time in naming his closer. Crain, Thornton, Reed are the three candidates for the job.
