White Sox vs. Hughes

Pregame concerns: Hughes has never faced Chicago. ... In three innings pitched against New York, Floyd has given up five earned runs. That equates to a 15.00 ERA. He is 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA in nine career games at U.S. Cellular Field. ... According to Peter Abraham, Brian Bruney has a sprained mid-foot and will be in New York to see a specialist tomorrow. He had a knee-length boot on and will most likely go on the disabled list. ... Alex Rodriguez could return to the lineup tomorrow as the designated hitter.
