ST. LOUIS – There will be buzz for Jorge Soler’s Wrigley Field debut. The $30 million Cuban outfielder did his part, living up to the hype with a red-hot start.
He didn’t leave Friday’s game until late but White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu appeared to be dealing with tightness in his right hamstring.
Though not the flamethrower of old, Justin Verlander was very good on Friday night. Scott Carroll and the White Sox defense were not.
Avisail Garcia has had some good moments and some rough ones since he returned to action for the White Sox this month.
John Danks would like to think Thursday night’s effort is a step toward a strong finish.
