MINNEAPOLIS -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen denies ever saying Brent Lillibridge strictly should be used as a platoon player. Guillen simply said Lillibridge has not succeeded in the past when the team has used him in an everyday role.
But Guillen readily admits the man who has saved at least three victories with his glove this year is a different player from the recent past.
"Can he show us he can play every day? Well, that will be nice," said Guillen of Lillibridge, hitting .273 with seven home runs. "If you can produce every day, I'll get you the shot. But, right now, we have to wait and see. We have a lot of season to go to see what happens."
