"Juan Pierre should be fine because he didn't play for the last two years. He's very fresh," Guillen said with a laugh. "A lot of people think a leadoff hitter is easy to find. It's not. We tried to make a leadoff hitter out of that guy for the last three years, (former prospect) Jerry Owens, and look at what happened. What we have here is legit. He's got experience. One thing about Juan, he brings a lot of stuff off the field. He's a leader, he's a hard worker, I think he's a guy who brings enthusiasm to the game."
NOTES: White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said closer Bobby Jenks is in need of more throwing after Jenks pitched at spring training Sunday. Jenks and his wife had another child, the weather in Chicago was bad and Jenks had difficulty finding someone to catch him, so he was limited to playing soft toss, Cooper said. "Bobby's got a little bit different schedule because he was just a tad behind," Cooper said Tuesday in the team's non-counting exhibition game against the Dodgers, right-handers Gavin Floyd, Daniel Cabrera, Carlos Torres and Daniel Hudson are expected to pitch two innings each Rain in the greater Phoenix area limited Sunday's workout to pitchers throwing in the batting cage and position players taking batting practice.
