"I'm ready for everything, all the time," said a smiling Olmedo.
"He was putting his gear on yesterday when I was walking around in the clubhouse," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura of his latest emergency catcher. "It's one thing on paper. It's a whole other thing to see him walking around in the gear."
Olmedo caught bullpens for two weeks while with Triple-A Charlotte and might try to do the same with the White Sox.
"Sometimes practicing different positions is good for you," said Olmedo, who hasn't caught since he was a little kid. "I do it because I like it."
