White Sox Talk Podcast: Ode to Mark Buehrle

With the news that the White Sox will retire Mark Buehrle's jersey this summer, we replay Chuck Garfien's 2011 interview with Buehrle who recalls all the big moments of his White Sox career: the perfect game, no-hitter, World Series save, his first and only home run, sliding on the tarp during rain delays and much, much more.

Also, John Buehrle (Mark's dad) joins Chuck and Ryan McGuffey to talk about the jersey retirement and Buehrle's White Sox career. Chuck and Ryan also share their favorite Buehrle stories.

Rick Renteria: White Sox not overly concerned about Todd Frazier's injury

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- They plan to stay vigilant, but the White Sox say Todd Frazier's left oblique injury isn't severe. 

A day after he said Frazier is day to day with what he described as a left oblique strain, manager Rick Renteria said the third baseman has improved.

"He's actually feeling good today, Renteria said. "Our purpose was to hold him back a little bit. Those side issues, muscular issues, oblique issues, they could be a pain in the rear, but it depends on the severity of those types of injuries. Right now it's just a mild soreness, so we're not concerned about it too much."

Renteria also said outfielder Charlie Tilson has shown some improvement. The hope is Tilson, who is expected to be sidelined for 10 days with a stress reaction in his right foot, could start limited activities on Friday.

Renteria also suggested Carlos Rodon could participate in his first bullpen session shortly. Rodon only began to play catch last Friday and hasn't pitched off the mound yet in camp.

"He feels good and he'll be out there soon," Renteria said. "He's extending and he feels good. He's holding it back a little bit."
