White Sox Designate Milledge For Assignment, Announce Today's Starting Lineup

Outfielder Lastings Milledge, who made the Sox as a backup with a good spring training, is being let go. He was designated for assignment today; his roster replacement will be righthanded reliever Jeff Gray, who was last seen in a major league uniform with the crosstown Cubs early last year.

Today’s Sox starting lineup does not include Adam Dunn, recuperating from an emergency appendectomy. Dunn wanted to play today, but the Sox are being cautious.

The Sox line up this way:

Juan Pierre LF
Gordon Beckham 2B
Alex Rios CF
Paul Konerko 1B
Carlos Quentin DH
Alexei Ramirez SS
A.J. Pierzynski C
Brent Morel 3B
Brent Lillibridge RF

Today’s starting pitcher is righthander Edwin Jackson, who is making his second start of the season. The weather, though chilly, looks like it will cooperate; no rain is in the forecast until late afternoon, though there is a dense fog advisory out until 1 pm. Temperatures are expected to remain in the low to mid 40s all day.
