Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura has embraced the pressure of the pennant race with a fearless approach. The rookie dugout boss has had to be on top of his game due to a sudden failure of the rotation, with the Sox having just one quality start in the past 11 games. Jose Quintana was the latest to struggle, lasting just 1 1/3 innings against the Twins on Tuesday.
"Because it is September we have enough quality guys (because of the expanded roster) to use them," Ventura said.
Ventura has adjusted quickly to using his rookies call-ups in crucial matchups. Rosters expanded on Saturday, allowing managers the luxury of having three or four extra bullpen pitchers.
