GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A day after manager Robin Ventura said Jeff Keppinger would be out for a couple of days, the White Sox infielder was penciled in the lineup at second base. Then he he was scratched in favor of Gordon Beckham because of a personal matter, a Sox spokesman said.
The Sox play the Angels in Tempe at 3:05 p.m. The game will be televised on MLB Network in the Chicago market. Left-hander John Danks will pitch for the Sox, followed by lefty Hector Santiago. This will be a good test for Danks to see where his velocity is at in his return from shoulder surgery in August.
The Sox lineup: Wise RF, Beckham 2B, Dunn 1B, Viciedo LF, Gillaspie 3B, Ramirez SS, Bell DH, Flowers C, Tekotte CF.
