Today's White Sox Quote of the Day comes from Don Cooper. Coop on Adam Russell:

[Nathaniel Whalen]

"(Russell) brings a fastball, anywhere from 91-97 from a couple of different angles. He's a horse, he has good stuff, he can pitch, he's throwing the ball over the plate early in the count to get contact and getting ahead of the hitters. I mean he's done everything that you would want a guy to do to make best of the opportunities he's been given this spring. He has grasped every opportunity. He's a non-roster guy not unlike Boone last year who just kept getting opportunities and cashed in on all of them."
