Third to first

Paul Konerko was scratched from Sunday's contest against the Rangers after feeling under the weather for the past two days. Konerko felt better Sunday but after not eating much over the past two days, the White Sox decided to play it safe and replaced him with Mike McDade.

• Sunday's 9-7 victory over the Rangers moves the White Sox overall Cactus League record to 68-89-11 since they moved to Glendale in 2009. They are 32-46-4 at Camelback Ranch, where they play Monday, and are 26-42-2 as the home team, which they are Monday against the Royals.

• Ventura had no update on the ongoing situation of Ronald Belisario and his visa issue in Venezuela.

"Believe me, that whole situation has gone dark for me. I can't do anything about it," Ventura said. "I just stop asking. I said, 'You guys just tell me when you think he's going to be here when it gets closer.' I'm not going to worry about it."

• Sunday's victory featured 12 singles and Tyler Flowers' sixth-inning homer among the White Sox 13-hit attack.
