Off-days likely to bring end to six-man rotation
ARLINGTON -- The White Sox were still using a six-man rotation as of Monday night.

Manager Ozzie Guillen said general manager Ken Williams is on the trip and the plan is to sit down and talk about how to handle the extra starting pitcher. The White Sox started a 10-game road trip with three games in Texas, followed by four games at Toronto and three more in Boston.

"Right now we have a plan," Guillen said. "Maybe through this trip, but later on maybe not, because if we have some days off, somebody is going to not pitch in seven or eight days. I don't know if we want to deal with that."

Guillen and Williams will have a tough job at hand with six quality starters currently in the rotation. Jake Peavy will start Tuesday's game and Gavin Floyd on Wednesday. Monday's starter John Danks, Edwin Jackson, Philip Humber and ace Mark Buerhle are also currently in the rotation.

Guillen isn't worried about telling one of them they're going to the bullpen.

"It's not about one guy," Guillen said. "It's about the ballclub. We don't want to do it to anybody."
