White Sox | Skipper wants Dylan Axelrod to relax

Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura officially named SP Dylan Axelrod as the team's fifth starter, taking over for the injured SP John Danks (shoulder). Ventura wants Axelrod to pitch free and easy. "I don't want him throwing every pitch thinking this is going to cost him next week or the next five days," Ventura said. "Let him go out and pitch and figure it out after." Pitching coach Don Cooper wants Axelrod to throw in the 90-pitch range in one of the road exhibition games against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park Friday, March 29, or Saturday, March 30.
