"I really don't know where that came from," said a smiling Stewart.
"I was happy yesterday that we had a five-man rotation, because, all of a sudden, I look up and I had two bullets left in the bullpen, and one bullet could throw three or four innings and it was [Stewart]," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. "That's why it's very important to have a guy that can pitch innings, and not just innings but quality innings. I think this guy can do that."
"Stewart's need is in the bullpen as we speak, today through Sunday," White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said. "I just don't see him starting right away. What I do see is him getting plenty more opportunities to pitch, plenty more opportunities to help us."
