The Chicago White Sox rotation will have a distinctly different feel this year without longtime lefty Mark Buehrle stationed atop the rotation. In his stead, the White Sox will be counting on young flamethrower Chris Sale and Philip Humber to pick up their performances.
Today, it was reported that Humber will get the start in the White Sox's first Cactus League game on Monday.

Humber was better than expected in his first season in Chicago a season ago, but his performance really tailed off after a hot start. Humber still finished with a 9-9 record in 26 starts and posted an impressive 1.18 WHIP to go along with a 3.75 ERA.
