Plan laid out for next rotation turn
MINNEAPOLIS -- White Sox manager Robin Ventura set his upcoming starting rotation but with an asterisk attached. Make that a few asterisks.

"I'm just focused on today," said Ventura when trying to recount the setup.

Philip Humber is the long reliever on call for Tuesday and Wednesday. If he does not pitch in those games, then Humber gets the start at home Friday against the Angels. He will be followed by Gavin Floyd on Saturday, while Chris Sale will return to the rotation Tuesday night at home against the Royals. Sale will be pitching with 10 days between trips to the mound.

Jose Quintana is penciled in for Sunday, but the White Sox could bring back Francisco Liriano on regular rest and use Jake Peavy the same way on Monday while bumping Quintana to Wednesday. That move would give the rookie eight days between starts.

"A couple could move around if something happens today or tomorrow," Ventura said.
