White Sox Vs. Indians: Adam Dunn Scratched With Stiff Neck

The Chicago White Sox will be without 1B Adam Dunn today, according to The Chicago Tribune. According to Dunn, the neck stiffness flared up overnight:

"It was still there (Wednesday) but I played anyway," Dunn said. "But I woke up (Thursday) and it felt like the very first day it happened. I can’t even see. I don’t care if I don’t swing, I just want to see pitches."

The White Sox have slotted 1B Dan Johnson into first for Thursday's matchup against the Cleveland Indians. Here is a look at the new lineup:

CF Alejandro De Aza
C A.J. Pierzynski
DH Alex Rios
RF Kosuke Fukudome
SS Alexei Ramirez
LF Dayan Viciedo
3B Brent Morel
1B Dan Johnson
2B Gordon Beckham
