White Sox | Closer situation cleared up?

Chicago White Sox RPs Addison Reed and Matt Thornton warmed up and eventually entered the regular season opener Friday, April 6, against the Texas Rangers. "Well, I don't know if it has eliminated two guys," Thornton said. "But it's clear at least two are out of the running." Reed threw a scoreless seventh inning, and Thornton tossed a scoreless eighth. RPs Jesse Crain and Hector Santiago were not used, although Santiago received the call to start loosening in case the White Sox rallied to take the lead. However, manager Robin Ventura would not say if Santiago would be the team's closer, and he even mentioned RPs Nathan Jones or Will Ohman could have gotten the call, too.
