Worth noting

• Right-handed reliever Mitchell Boggs and the White Sox agreed on a Minor League deal. The White Sox had hoped to keep the veteran after granting his unconditional release on March 23.

• Ventura was waiting until Monday to announce his left field starter and his closer. Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo are the options in left, while Nate Jones, Matt Lindstrom and Daniel Webb are the top candidates to pitch the ninth.

• Just under 3,000 tickets were available as of Sunday for Monday's Opening Day contest with the Twins.

• Count Adam Dunn as one of the many on the White Sox who believes this team could be one of the 2014 surprise stories.

"There wouldn't be a purpose for us to be in this room right now if 25 guys plus coaches didn't believe we could be not just better but significantly better," Dunn said.
