The White Sox’ manager issued stern warnings to utility players Jayson Nix, Brent Lillibridge and even rookie catcher Tyler Flowers. They all need to start playing “small ball” if they hope to stick on the 25-man roster. … “I take the heat for everything, so I have to demand some stuff,” Guillen said. “You are going to continue to do that, you won’t be with us. It’s going to be tough for them to be here. I don’t think they play the game they should be playing in the big leagues. You’ve got to hit and run, you’ve got to move the guy over. You can’t strike out 60 times when you’re a backup player. You can’t. OK, you have a few home runs, but you can’t strike out that many times. Their game’s got to change because the way we’re going to play from now on, it’s a different ballgame and we’ve got to be prepared for that.”

Nix (.224/.307/.409/.716) has 63 strikeouts in 254 ABs. Here are Nix’ 2009 Batting Splits. Flowers has 8 Ks in 16 ABs. Lillibridge has 25 Ks in 93 ABs.
