Just wondering because I'm going to the game and would like to see Frank...

99% positive he won't.

Ozzie, according to the paper, does not allow a player to play at least one day after he comes out of a game with an injury.

I understand Ozzie's logic, he doesn't want a player to push it the next day and hurt themselves further, but I could also see it making it more likely that a player will stay in the game with an injury so as not to be guaranteed riding the bench the next day - possibly hurting themselves even more.

I don't think the players are that big of jackasses to where they'd risk going on the DL to play an extra day. I do see your point, though.

There's no way to know until the lineup is posted. Frank's injury seemed to be more heat-related than anything else. He probably wasn't drinking enough fluids. That's easily fixed- just buy him some Gatorade. OTOH, Ozzie believes strongly in protecting his players, so I don't expect Frank to play until tomorrow. Also, Ozzie hinted that he wanted to get Carl at-bats against Vasquez.

No, it's Everett http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=52059

EDIT: The original post said "play", so I guess there's always a chance of pinch hitting...
