The Chicago White Sox Are Moving To A 6-Man Starting Rotation

Opening Day starter John Danks is now out for the season, but the Chicago White Sox still have a surplus of starting pitching. After dealing for former Minnesota Twins starter Francisco Liriano just before trade deadline, Chicago is now set to move ahead with a six-man rotation.

On Wednesday, manager Robin Ventura announced his rotation for the next six games. Philip Humber, Gavin Floyd and Francisco Liriano will face the Los Angeles Angels. Jake Peavy, Jose Quintana and Chris Sale are set to start the following series vs. Kansas City Royals.

The major benefactor of the longer rotation will be Sale, who saw his velocity drop some in his last start. He's reported to have a 'dead arm'. The six-man rotation will give Sale 10 days between starts.
