Here's the latest on the Chicago White Sox, including speculation on the Opening Day roster and some injury updates.
- White Sox rookie Hector Santiago is competing for one of the club's final three bullpen spots this Spring. Scott Merkin of MLB.com tweets that he "would be surprised" if Santiago doesn't make the club, "as it's constructed presently."
- Merkin also tweets that Brandon Short will have an MRI done on his shoulder, and that RHP Deunte Heath suffered a shoulder contusion but is fine.
- Meanwhile, a trio of relievers -- Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain, and Addison Reed -- are competing for the White Sox' closer role this Spring.
- Over at Baseball Nation, Jeff Sullivan wrote about Adam Dunn and the essence of spring.
- Jim Margalus of South Side Sox doesn't see Dan Johnson making the 25-man roster. The bench doesn't have a lot of wiggle room, and Margalus concludes that Johnson will likely "tail off" before becoming a legitimate possibility for the team.
- Meanwhile, also at South Side Sox, U-God debunks some myths regarding former White Sox second baseman Tadahito Iguchi.
