Starting rotation reset, Sale gets 10 days' rest
MINNEAPOLIS -- Philip Humber, Gavin Floyd and Francisco Liriano will be facing the Angels at home this weekend, with Jake Peavy, Chris Sale and Jose Quintana getting the call against the Royals to start next week.

This alignment means Liriano and Peavy work on regular rest, while Humber and Floyd get an extra off-day. Sale has 10 days in between starts, while Quintana will have eight days since his last trip to the mound. The moves work along the White Sox desire to watch the rising innings totals of Sale, as a first-year starter, and Quintana, as a rookie.

"When you have six guys, you can push it around this way, because you have the flexibility to have guys go every five days," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Having the two young guys, you try to take care of them and give them the best opportunity when they go out there, they're at their strongest.

"The most important thing is to make sure they're healthy and competitive when they go out there. Make sure they have every bit of ammo when they go out there and pitch."
