Left-hander Matt Thornton accepted his appointment as the Chicago White Sox’s closer in stride, adding he was ready for any changes during the regular season.
“(Manager Ozzie Guillen) said, ‘Look, you’re our guy to start the season,’ ” Thornton said. ” ‘And if you throw back-to-back days and we got a run of big righties coming up, we’ll probably go with someone else in that situation.’ Obviously, at the same time, if a closer throws back-to-back games early in the year, more than likely you’re going to give him that third day off. I’m looking forward to the opportunity and the challenge of being the ninth-inning guy.”
