Who's hot

Adam Eaton has eight hits and three walks with two stolen bases so far this spring...Jordan Danks, who's on the bench for today's game, leads the Sox with two Cactus League home runs and has a 1.047 OPS in 26 at-bats...Indians starter Josh Tomlin has nine strikeouts in seven innings with a 1.29 spring ERA. 

Eye on the future

This'll be your first opportunity to catch Jose Abreu on CSN, and the Cuban first baseman is off to a fine start stateside. His six RBIs lead the White Sox this spring, and he cracked his first home run last Friday. Avisial Garcia is hitting cleanup behind him, though he's off to a slow Cactus League start (nine strikeouts in 28 at-bats). Top prospects Matt Davidson, Micah Johnson and Marcus Semien are all on the bench for today's game.
