Sox @ Tigers -- Garcia vs. Maroth

I almost forgot about this game. Almost.

The Sox go for the sweep in D'Town. Freddy Garcia, who was brilliant last time out, looks to add his name to all of the All-Star talk. -- Why doesn't his name get brought up, anyway? -- Mike Maroth pitches for the Tigers.

From the I told you so a long time ago files: Damaso Marte to the DL.

The White Sox have placed left-handed reliever Damaso Marte on the 15-day disabled list and have recalled left-hander Kevin Walker from Class AAA Charlotte.

Marte has an inflamed left trapezius; he was placed on the DL retroactive to June 27. He is 3-3 this season with a 2.81 ERA and 29 strikeouts. He leads the Sox with 34 appearances this season.

I was going to mention that there might have been something wrong with him when he failed to make an appearence last night. Kevin Walker, who had the extreme fortune of being born left handed, which means he will always have a spot at the 13th man on pitching staff, brings his considerable suckitude north with him to take Damaso's spot. Somewhere in Charlotte, Jeff Bajenaru is crying.
