Third to first

• A Cactus League debut has not yet been set for Matt Lindstrom, per Ventura's postgame comments Sunday. Lindstrom threw a second side session Saturday and reported no issues with his strained left oblique that has kept him out of game action.

"It's the same thing with Gordon (Beckham)," said Ventura of Lindstrom. "You have to make sure he's completely healthy and can do it repeatedly before you send him out there and do it again.

"We have enough going on with mixing up the lineup and everything with Gordon being out. I have to talk with (White Sox head athletic trainer) Herm (Schneider) before I say anything about that."

• Former White Sox outfielder and two-sport star Bo Jackson will visit White Sox camp from March 17-22. He will serve as a special instructor after being named a White Sox community ambassador on Jan. 22, 2014.

Zach Putnam allowed his first run in seven appearances courtesy of a J.P. Arencibia grand slam during Sunday's 14-8 loss to the Rangers. Only one run was charged to Putnam.
