TUCSON, Ariz. -- Mark Buehrle was rusty Tuesday, but healthy enough for the White Sox to move closer to deciding on their Opening Day roster.

Buehrle showed no signs of a sore left foot that had sidelined him since March 19.

He did, however, show the effects of a nine-day layoff in a 4-3 loss to Colorado at Hi Corbett Field.

Buehrle needed 90 pitches to get through five innings. He scattered eight hits but missed often with inside pitches to the Rockies' right-handed batters.

"No pain, everything went fine," Buehrle said in quelling fears that he could miss up to six weeks with what was originally diagnosed as a fracture he thought he'd sustained shagging balls in batting practice on March 20. "I was up in the [strike] zone more than I wanted to be. I'm not worried about it on Opening Day."

Can we now put this crap behind us?

Great news. Knowing Buehrle, that rust should be off by Opening Day. I can't wait!

:D:

:D:

If I recall, that article mentioned that Mark was going to have a bullpen session later this week (Friday?) So that should help in the rust area as well.

Bring on April 4th!

90 pitches in 5 innings. That's a typical start for Wood and Prior. That should get Mark some notice with the media. Unfortunately MB will go back to his usual 90 pitches in 7 innings, which is far too boring for the writers.
