Close Calls

Brian Anderson and D.J. Carrasco suffered the first official bumps and bruises of White Sox camp on Saturday.

Anderson got hit in the left side with a pitch from closer Bobby Jenks, while Carrasco took an Alexei Ramirez line drive off of his right forearm, also during live batting practice. Manager Ozzie Guillen expected Carrasco to be sore for a couple of days but said that the Ramirez shot caught the muscle and not the bone in Carrasco’s arm. The right-hander, a valuable part of last year’s bullpen and moving forward into 2009, is scheduled to pitch Thursday in Tucson against the Rockies.
