Third to first

• Micker Adolfo, the No. 2 ranked International prospect last year according to, made his White Sox debut for the Arizona Rookie League team Friday, finishing 0-for-4 with two strikes and one walk. Bell cautioned against expecting too much too early from the 17-year-old, whom the White Sox committed a franchise-record bonus for an international signee of $1.6 million.

"That's going to be a real test for him. He might not get a hit," said Bell of the White Sox current No. 13 prospect. "He's 16 or 17 years old and he's never really played in any games really to speak of. I mean, he'll get a hit, but we don't really project any big numbers or anything.

"Hopefully he'll surprise us. He just has so long to go in terms of just actually playing the game. All these kids that have signed in this particular case, they are all showcase guys: BP guys, arm guys, speed guys. So you have to be more patient than people really think we need to be."

• Ventura changed his lineup for Sunday's series finale, giving Moises Sierra a start in right field and giving Dayan Viciedo a break. Ventura also moved Conor Gillaspie to sixth and moved Jose Abreu, Adam Dunn and Alexei Ramirez to third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

"Kind of balance it out," Ventura said. "That's the way to balance it out."
