Quintana to face Tigers on Monday

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

MINNEAPOLIS -- The White Sox altered their rotation for the next four games, moving Jose Quintana off Saturday's start and lining him up for the Detroit Tigers on Monday.

The Sox play a makeup game of Thursday's rained out game at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday afternoon.

Francisco Liriano will move back into the rotation Saturday to face his former team, the Minnesota Twins. Jake Peavy stays on turn for Sunday's start.

Gavin Floyd, originally planned for Monday, will pitch Tuesday when the Sox open a three-game series in Kansas City.

The move gives Quintana, a rookie who is taking on the heaviest workload of his career, two extra days rest, pitching coach Don Cooper acknowledged. It also gives Floyd, who came off the disabled list Wednesday, an extra day.

"It's really for Q and Gavin,'' Cooper said. "Those are the two guys affected by extra days."

"[Quintana] pitched well against [the Tigers on Monday],'' Cooper said. "Maybe we get that again. It's laid out this way for us because we feel this is the best opportunity for us to win today, to win tomorrow. And each day. And that's kind of what we're going to go with now. But 3-4-5 days from now, who knows? It might change."
