Absent from that list is Eloy Jimenez, who will remained sidelined with a foot sprain.
Earlier Tuesday, the Sox unveiled the roster for the series, featuring a handful of interesting moves heading into the series.
The White Sox reinstated utilityman Leury Garcia from the 45-day injured list, and he was listed on the team’s 28-man roster for their series. To make room on the 40-man roster, the White Sox designated pitcher Alex McRae for assignment.
The White Sox also announced that they will indeed have pitcher Carlos Rodon on the roster, and the team left pitcher Reynaldo Lopez, who started their final game of the regular season against the Chicago Cubs, off of the 28-man roster.
Gio Gonzalez was also omitted from the team’s roster.
Lopez can be added to the team’s roster if they advance to the American League Division Series.
