NOTES: White Sox infielder Jeff Keppinger was unavailable to start or come off the bench in Saturday's game against the Rays with effects of the same back spasms that scratched him from the starting lineup on Friday night. Ventura said the Sox are treating the injury and don't anticipate it becoming a long-term issue that will require a stint on the disabled list. ... Chicago outfielder Dewayne Wise was available for use off the bench Saturday after also being scratched Friday with a stiff neck. ... John Danks likely will make his next start during a minor league rehab assignment, after making his last start in extended spring training on Friday. ... Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar did more on-field work before Saturday's game but wasn't able to play with the tight hamstring that he left a game early with last Wednesday. Maddon said Escobar might be able to return Tuesday in Kansas City. ... The Rays might also get outfielder Luke Scott (calf strain) back on Tuesday, depending on how his Class A rehab stint goes this weekend. Scott was hit in the elbow by a pitch Friday and was removed from the game, but Maddon said it wasn't serious enough to keep him from playing Saturday. ... Rays catcher Jose Molina left Saturday's game in the fourth inning with a right thigh contusion after being hit by a pitch. The team said Molina is day to day.
