In First Place with a 3 game lead, the White Sox still have to make moves-relying on what some "experts" call the worst farm system in baseball. Youk is banged-up and needs a rest (o-Dog still on the DL) so, yesterday's winner Axelrod goes back to the minors for Jose Lopez. J-Lo gets the start at 3rd while Tyler Flowers goes home to be a family man. (Good for him!)
The paternity leave list may be used when a player finds it necessary to leave the team to attend the birth of his child. A player placed on the paternity leave list must miss the next team game, but no more than three games. The team can use another player from its 40-man roster to replace a player on the paternity leave list. This list was adopted beginning with the 2011 season.
Hector Gimenez has been called up to be the back-up catcher.
Today's game is a 11:30 am CT start. Will be grabbing an early lunch or maybe we'll call it brunch!
