White Sox alter rotation for rest of road trip

White Sox alter rotation for rest of road trip

|

NEW YORK -- The White Sox made slight adjustments to their starting rotation for the remainder of this 10-game road trip.

Wednesday's starter in New York officially is listed as TBA, as is Saturday's, when Andre Rienzo originally would have taken the mound in Baltimore. Hector Santiago moves from Wednesday's series finale against the Yankees to Thursday's series opener against the Orioles, with John Danks starting Friday and Jose Quintana on Sunday.

Erik Johnson, No. 2 on MLB.com's ranking of White Sox prospects, appears to be a prime candidate for Wednesday's start, with the right-hander expected to be called up from Triple-A Charlotte after the Knights' season ends on Monday. Johnson, who has a 12-3 record with a 1.96 ERA over 24 combined starts between Double-A Birmingham and Charlotte, last pitched Thursday.

Manager Robin Ventura mentioned Charlie Leesman as another starting candidate, but Leesman would seem an unlikely choice for Wednesday after throwing 82 pitches in relief on Sunday in Boston. Dylan Axelrod also is available.
