Worth noting

• The White Sox are undecided on Wednesday's starter because of the injuries to the rotation. Ventura said Wednesday's game might be a "bullpen day," in which somebody like Zach Putnam would pitch the first 3-4 innings and the rest of the 'pen would take it from there. A lot hinges on how Scott Carroll performed in his Major League debut on Sunday.

"We're not hour to hour, but we're day to day," Ventura said. "We'll figure it out."

Carroll, 29, had Tommy John surgery in October 2012 and considered quitting baseball. He returned to the mound July 5, 2013, and had a 3.29 ERA in 11 combined starts between Rookie-Bristol and Double-A Birmingham last season.

• The White Sox have scored 134 runs this season, up from 89 at the same point last season.

Adam Dunn (445) and Paul Konerko (434) rank third and sixth, respectively, among active players in home runs.
