• The White Sox have yet to name a starter for Sunday's contest, but all signs point to righty Scott Carroll, who is 3-1 with a 1.57 ERA in four starts at Triple-A Charlotte. Ventura said the team would make a decision after Saturday's game.
• Abreu is hitting .400 with five home runs, 13 RBIs and 10 runs scored in his last seven games.
• Dayan Viciedo (.370) and Alexei Ramirez (.358) rank first and third in the American League in hitting entering Saturday's game. Tyler Flowers (.388) would lead the AL in hitting if he had the required number of at-bats to qualify.
• With Friday's win, the White Sox snapped a five-game losing streak to Tampa Bay and won their first nine-inning game when issuing 11-plus walks since May 31, 2000, at Seattle (also 11 walks).
