White Sox Quotes of the Day: Bobby Jenks, Don Cooper

Bobby will start stretching his shoulder every day:

[Joe Cowley]

The team also added a new workout routine to Jenks' program that included an emphasis on stretching the shoulder every day, as well as doing "dry work" on the mound, making sure his mechanics were back in order by using a towel.

Jenks said Monday that he will keep that routine the rest of the season.

"Yeah, just because I don't want this to be a problem. I don't want them to have to worry about if I'm doing my work. The stretching takes 10 minutes, and the work takes 35 minutes. It's not a lot to do."

Rowand didn't need stretching.

And, Coop wants Gio to add a changeup to his pitching arsenal:

[Mark Gonzales]

"That's the pitch he's going to need. The No. 1 goal for this kid is if he doesn't come to Chicago, what he has to do to prepare before he gets there. He's good now, but we're asking how can we make this guy better? You add a changeup, he goes from a nice spot to even a nicer spot as well as a front-end guy [in the rotation]."
