GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Matt Lindstrom was on the schedule to pitch Friday against the Dodgers at Camelback Ranch, but the right-hander was scratched for precautionary reasons due to a very mild left oblique strain. Lindstrom is expected to resume throwing Saturday, the White Sox said.

Rookie Daniel Webb returned home to Kentucky due to a death in his family. There is no timetable for his return.

"It's just a family deal," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura of Webb. "So we'll kind of go by what he needs and go from there."
