Schouwen @ CST:

Phil Humber, who after signing a minor-league free agent deal in December found a good pitching groove this spring, will fill the void left by Jake Peavy and likely be one of 12 pitchers on the White Sox’ opening-day roster. Humber will get Thursday’s start against the Cubs, pitching coach Don Cooper said Sunday night, and is the likely fifth starter penciled in for April 6 in Kansas City.

“We’re going to have him ready to start if necessary during the season until Jake is ready,” Cooper said on 670-AM’s “Mully and Hanley Show” Monday morning. “Because of that we’ll probably look into taking 12 [pitchers]. Sounds like a good idea to me because we’re going to need that 12th guy.”
