On tap: Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and Avisail Garcia are among the top position players who will officially check into camp when the White Sox hold their first full-squad workout.

Yesterday's headlines:

-- John Danks believes Chris Sale is the best pitcher in baseball 

-- Jose Abreu leads four White Sox prospects ranked in Baseball America’s Top 100

-- Nate Jones is behind the rest of his fellow White Sox pitchers but on the mend 

-- Paul Konerko’s leadership is something Jose Abreu looks forward to  

-- Chris Sale didn’t make it easy for teammates in live batting practice 


Quote of the day:

There were real good takes for everybody… It’s not fun. They go out there and do their best just to give the pitcher some looks of somebody standing in there. But I don’t think anybody is ready to start facing Chris before we even start (camp). --- Robin Ventura on hitters’ facing Chris Sale in live batting practice.
