Third to first

• Once again on Monday night, the White Sox lineup featured a quartet of Cubans in Abreu, Dayan Viciedo, Alexei Ramirez and Adrian Nieto. According to A's Spanish radio broadcaster Amaury Pi-Gonzalez, the 2014 White Sox are the first team to start four Cubans in the same lineup since the 1969 Cleveland Indians, which featured Jose Cardenal, Joe Azcue, Zoilo Versalles and Luis Tiant.

• Before Tuesday night's contest in Oakland, A's slugger Yoenis Cespedes poked his head into the White Sox clubhouse before trading bats with Viciedo.
