Third base appears to be open
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- If Brent Morel has been selected as the White Sox starting third baseman, as one media Tweet suggested Sunday morning, then it was news to the rookie.

That starting job does look to be all but official for Morel, considered a defensive whiz along the lines of a young Joe Crede. Ozzie Guillen talked to Mark Teahen on Sunday about getting some starts in right field during the final two weeks of Spring Training, an idea Guillen brought up after Saturday's game in Phoenix.

"It's a story or whatever," said Teahen of the third-base competition. "But I'm preparing to do whatever they ask me to do.

"For me, it doesn't change a whole lot. I want to make sure I'm where I want physically, and with my swing and everything else. Wherever I am in the lineup or on the field, I'll figure it out from there."
