Following Monday's snapping of a five-game losing streak was sobering news of an injury to catcher A.J. Pierzynski. Though his right oblique strain is listed as mild, the prospect of Pierzynski missing a substantial number of games could hamper Chicago as they attempt to stay in the playoff hunt.
White Sox skipper Robin Ventura held his starting catcher out of Chicago's 11-4 win over Minnesota Tuesday. Coupled with Detroit's loss in Cleveland, the White Sox pulled into a tie with the Tigers in the AL Central Division.
It isn't far-fetched to think that he will start Tyler Flowers again on Wednesday. Ventura told MLB.com's Cash Kruth that with a rash of injuries, mostly to the pitching staff, his reserves have to step up.
