#Reds lineup @ White Sox— C. Trent Rosecrans (@ctrent) February 25, 2018
Winker DH (D Herrera)
Gosselin 4 (Long)
Suarez 5 (Kivlehan)
Schebler 9 (Aquino)
Turner 2 (Tromp)
- Jordan Guerrero makes his first spring start. Last year with the Charlotte Knights (AAA), Guerrero went 7-12 in 25 starts, with a 4.18 ERA and 43 walks against 136 strikeouts. He was left exposed to the Rule 5 draft this past offseason, to much consternation (including Guerrero’s own), but was not selected.
- Cincinnati’s Luis Castillo made his major league debut in 2017 and went 3-7 in 15 starts for the Reds, with a 3.12 ERA, 3.74 FIP and 2.3 WAR. The Reds are his fourth team; he’s previously been in the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins (twice) organizations. Castillo has never faced the White Sox in regular season action.
Here is who to expect on the mound today and in coming action for the White Sox. Today, beyond, Guerrero’s start, the slate includes who-will-be-the-closer intrigue from Juan Minaya and Gregory Infante, plus a bonus shot-at-redemption 9th for Michael Ynoa.

Oh, and if we go extras, one more possibility:
Jose Contreras says he’s here for 3 weeks to work with White Sox pitchers. Looks like he can go 6 innings today! pic.twitter.com/EeqX2Ug7lD— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) February 19, 2018
