GLENDALE, Ariz. -- There has been talk that Alex Rios, the 2011 White Sox center fielder, could become the 2012 White Sox left fielder, with Alejandro De Aza moving to center. Rios has just one career game in left from the 2010 season and sounded hesitant to make the move when speaking on the topic Saturday.

"I like center and right because those are the ones I've played," Rios said. "It's different. Center and right is different than left. We'll see what happens."

That decision is one of a number of team moves being worked through by White Sox manager Robin Ventura, general manager Ken Williams and their staffs. But Ventura stressed player flexibility during his Saturday media session.

"We'll see kind of how that matches up. There's no concrete thing to it," Ventura said. "Guys will just have to be open to moving around and do what's best for the team."
