Third to first

• The 'B' game lineup for Tuesday morning in Goodyear features Micah Johnson at second, Carlos Sanchez at third, Andy Wilkins at first, Tyler Flowers at DH, Alex Liddi at shortstop, Jared Mitchell in left, Thompson in center, Hector Gimenez behind the plate, Blake Tekotte in center and Miguel Gonzalez as a second DH. Teams pretty much set their own rules in these games.

• Ventura likes the left-right hitting balance currently on the White Sox roster, adding that he doesn't see a present need to add another left-handed hitter.

• The White Sox traded right-handed pitcher Zach Stewart, who made 28 starts for Triple-A Charlotte in 2013, to the Braves for cash considerations.
