Guillen ticked at Colon

bartolo-colon.jpgMINNEAPOLIS - Ozzie Guillen wasn't real thrilled with the news that the club had to place pitcher Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of elbow soreness, but the White Sox manager was even less thrilled that Colon didn't let anyone know he was hurting until Tuesday.
"No, I don't even think Colon knows about it,'' Guillen responded, when asked if he had an idea he was hurting.
It was then pointed out to Guillen that Colon was playing dominos before the game, rather than getting treatment.
"I think that's the Dominican style - when you're hurt, you play dominos,'' Guillen said. "I was kind of upset because our trainers didn't even know anything about the situation. And when we got the news, I talked to [head trainer] Hermie [Schneider] about it. He didn't have anything about it. I had the medical report, and I don't see anything with Colon and all of a sudden he couldn't [pitch].
"[General manager] Kenny [Williams] wasn't too happy. I was disappointed because if you feel something ... you're not going to feel soreness from one day to another. You have to feel that. Unfortunately, that's the way he handled it, and I think he handled it the wrong way. You feel something, you should tell the trainers where you're at.''
The Sox called lefty reliever Randy Williams up for Colon's spot and told Clayton Richard he was back in the starting rotation, getting the nod on Friday.
The return of Matt Thornton from the birth of his daughter also brought the bullpen back up to full strength.
