The Chicago White Sox will once again be without CF Alejandro De Aza. The dynamic center fielder missed Monday's game with back stiffness. He currently sports a .289/.351/.412 slash with 20 steals to his credit, and with him out of the lineup, CF Jordan Danks -- hitting just .308/.317/.333 in his rookie season -- will man De Aza's leadoff spot against the Kansas City Royals.
