White Sox Vs. Cubs: Brent Morel Scratched From Lineup, Escobar To Start At Third

The Chicago White Sox will be without their starting third baseman in Sunday's inner-city matchup. According to the official White Sox twitter account, 3B Brent Morel will take a seat in favor of INF Eduardo Escobar:

Morel has struggled -- both with a lower injury and with the bat -- in the 2012 MLB season. The 25-year-old is floundering with a .177/.225/.195 slash and is still without a home run through 125 plate appearances.

Escobar, on the other hand, has fared no better through the early part of the season. He currently sports a .176/.222/.265 slash with 1 steal through 37 plate appearances.
