Hector Noesi struck out five but allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Indians.

He yielded five hits -- including a pair of home runs -- and issued two walks. Noesi holds a solid 3.68 ERA this spring, which you'd think would be good enough to cement the fifth spot in the rotation. However, the White Sox for some reason might give Brad Penny the job.

Tyler Flowers had a single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Indians.

The longball came in the third inning off of Trevor Bauer. It was Flowers' third tater this spring, although he's hitting just .233. In other words, he's being Tyler Flowers.

Carlos Rodon will begin the season in Triple-A Charlotte's rotation.

Rodon hasn't officially been re-assigned to minor league camp yet, but both White Sox manager Robin Ventura and general manager Rick Hahn indicated that the move was coming. Hahn did suggest that Rodon could eventually come up to help in relief if a need arises, but for now the left will stay stretched out as a starter. He stands a good chance to be in Chicago's rotation at some point this season. "He could survive in the bullpen right now, yes," Hahn said. "But is that the best move for his long-term development and long-term value to the Chicago White Sox, or having a front-end starter?"

Jake Petricka will open the season on the disabled list.

The stint can be backdated so that Petricka is available for activation on April 11. And the White Sox feel he should be ready by then. Petricka came down with some forearm soreness late last week, but an MRI was taken and showed no structural damage. He'll work in a setup role this year behind White Sox closer David Robertson.

White Sox reassigned RHP Chris Beck to minor league camp.

Beck had a decent showing this spring in the Cactus League, but the 24-year-old right-hander was never really in consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. He should get a shot at some point this summer.
Mar 30 - 12:28 PM

Micah Johnson continued his impressive Cactus League season, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the White Sox topped the Indians 4-1 on Sunday.

The speedy infielder has all but locked up the team's starting job at second base, hitting .347 (17-for-49) with a homer, six RBI and three stolen bases. While he'll hit near the bottom of the White Sox lineup, his speed alone should provide plenty of mixed league value.
Mar 29 - 8:54 PM

Scott Carroll pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one unearned run on two hits over three innings.

Carroll walked one and struck out one on the ballgame. He has done a tremendous job in Cactus League competition, posting a 1.04 ERA 6/3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. He could crack the White Sox opening day roster as a long reliever, otherwise he'll serve as rotational depth at Triple-A.
Mar 29 - 8:51 PM

David Robertson (forearm) felt good after his scoreless inning of work in Sunday's Cactus League contest.

Robertson got three ground ball outs and allowed a double in his inning of work. After the White Sox closer indicated he was "feeling better than I did earlier in camp. Just needed some time to get the soreness out." It looks as though he should be ready to go for Opening Day and can safely be selected among the second tier of closers in fantasy drafts.

Jake Petricka is still feeling soreness in his right forearm.

An MRI last week revealed no structural damage, but Petricka resumed throwing Saturday and it apparently didn't go well. With Opening Day just a week away, it's looking like he could be headed for the disabled list. Petricka is coming off a fine season, having put up a 2.96 ERA while recording 14 saves.
Mar 29 - 2:43 PM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with a run scored as the White Sox fell to the Athletics 10-4 on Saturday.

Humorously enough, the 2-for-5 performance actually lowered Abreu's spring average to .479 (23-for-48), which shows just how well he's hit in the Cactus League. Both hits were singles, which has been emblematic of his spring -- 19 of his 23 hits are singles -- but the power should reveal itself on a frequent basis during the regular season. Abreu belted 36 home runs and knocked in 107 runs en route to winning the AL Rookie of the Year award last year.
Mar 28 - 7:55 PM

Jose Quintana pitched well on Saturday, limiting the Athletics to two runs (one earned) over six innings.

A throwing error by second baseman Emilio Bonifacio helped the Athletics score twice in the first inning. Quintana settled down from there, allowing six hits overall while walking none and striking out five. He looks ready for the regular season, owning a 2.91 ERA with a 16/3 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings in the Cactus League.
Mar 28 - 7:52 PM

David Robertson (forearm) is scheduled to pitch Sunday.

Robertson has been dealing with some forearm soreness in camp, but as of now it doesn't appear to be anything major. If healthy, the right-hander will be the team's closer this season after saving 39 games for the Yankees in 2014.

White Sox reassigned LHP Zach Phillips to minor league camp.

Phillips wasn't expected to crack the team's Opening Day roster, but should provide sold bullpen depth at the Triple-A level, provided he doesn't decide to return to Japan.
Mar 28 - 3:25 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Daniel Webb to Triple-A Charlotte.

Once thought of as the team's closer of the future, the 25-year-old posted a troublesome 8.68 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in 9 1/3 innings in the spring. He should get an opportunity with the White Sox at some point during the upcoming season.
Mar 28 - 3:23 PM

Melky Cabrera clubbed his first home run as a member of the White Sox in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday.

Cabrera victimized Cubs closer Hector Rondon for the solo shot in the ninth inning. The veteran outfielder also added a pair of singles, finising the afternoon 3-for-4 to raise his spring average to .357. He should be a tremendous source of runs hitting in front of Jose Abreu and Adam LaRoche in a much improved White Sox lineup.
