Central Notes: White Sox, Tigers, Wells, Hicks

Here's a look at the latest out of the American League Central..

  • White Sox manager Robin Ventura believes that this year's team has more potential than last year's squad, thanks in part to offseason additions that make them a stronger postseason team, writes Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times.  The White Sox kept their starting pitching in tact while adding Jeff Keppinger and Matt Lindstrom to the fold.
  • Jason Beck of MLB.com wonders if the Tigers might make a move for Casper Wells after he was designated for assignment by the Mariners yesterday.  Detroit had interest in making a move for Wells towards the end of spring training and will likely have to work out a trade for the outfielder before he hits the waiver wire if they want to grab him.  
  • The future is now for Twins prospect Aaron Hicks, writes MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger.  The center fielder, who is ranked 72nd on Baseball America's Top 100 list and 98th on MLB.com's Top 100, was given the starting job despite the fact that it starts his service clock earlier.
