It’s Santa Kenny!
“We’ve been on this for quite some time,” White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said. “We’ve been monitoring him [J.J. Putz] ever since the season ended. His daily workouts we’re very familiar with. We’ve had weekly progress reports. When our doctors finally got their hands on him he passed his physical with flying colors. We couldn’t be happier with what was communicated to us by our doctors.
“We feel now from the top of the rotation to the bottom of the bullpen we’re as strong as we’ve ever been.”
