GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The White Sox made four cuts, optioning right-handers Andre Rienzo and Jhan Marinez, C Josh Phegley and OF Jared Mitchell to AAA Charlotte, bringing their number of players in camp to 41.
Also, Tyler Flowers (stiff back) was a late scratch in favor of Hector Gimenez on Friday. Flowers is day-to-day, manager Robin Ventura said.
Righthander Jesse Crain, who has made one appearance this spring because of a groin strain, must feel like a marked man. He pitched in a minor league game and was struck on the right hip by a line drive but finished his inning. Trainer Herm Schneider said Crain is fine.
