Open Thread: Game -26 (Chicago White Sox at Oakland Athletics)

New, 474 comments

The Chicago White Sox are in town today, taking on the A's at home in Phoenix Municipal Stadium. First pitch is at 12:05 PM. Ben Sheets will make his second Spring Training appearance as he faces (for a couple innings, at least) Daniel Hudson.

Couple items of news (from Susan Slusser's Drumbeat):

  • The Mets felt that Jay Marshall had a pre-existing shoulder injury, so Marshall was returned to Oakland. Recall that the Mets had claimed Marshall on waivers back in early January. It looks like the A's released him immediately.
  • Joey Devine has a mild case of tendinitis. He'll be on the mend for around a week.
  • Travis Buck had his ear flushed out after his dizziness yesterday. He should be ready to go today.
  • And in the best news of all, Justin Duchscherer threw 32 pitches yesterday, and everything seemed fine. He'll face live hitters on Friday.
