Jose Quintana held the Red Sox scoreless through 6 1/3 innings in the White Sox victory on Tuesday.
The left-hander allowed just three hits and two walks in the outing, striking out five. Quintana now has a 3.48 ERA, and the win was his first since April 24. His next start will come against the Cubs on Monday.
Hector Santiago will get the start Wednesday in place of the injured Chris Sale (shoulder).
Santiago will be starting on short rest, though he lasted just 3 1/3 innings and 80 pitches in his last outing. It could be the left-hander's last start for a while, as he's an option to be bumped from the rotation when John Danks returns.
Chris Sale has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Red Sox due to mild tendinitis in his left posterior shoulder.
It's obviously a tough break for Sale's fantasy owners, but the good news is that the move is viewed as precautionary and he's expected to be ready to start next Tuesday. Hector Santiago will get the ball Wednesday in Sale's place. He'll be pitching on three days' rest.
Gordon Beckham (hand) started at shortstop Monday in his third rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte.
Beckham played shortstop in college and as a prospect, but he has never done so in the majors. Of course, Alexei Ramirez is in the second year of a four-year, $32.5 million contract, so there would have to be an injury or a trade for him to get a look there with the big club. Still, it's an interesting development. Beckham is hitting .462 (6-for-13) with one double and two RBI over three rehab games and should be activated this weekend.
Matt Lindstrom has allowed an earned run in three of his last five relief appearances.
The streaky Idahoan didn't allow a run through April 20, then gave up six in his next four appearances, then was perfect in May until the 10th, when his newest batch of concerns cropped up. The 32-year-old reliever, signed to a one-year, $2.8 million contract over the winter, holds a 4.76 ERA over 17 innings. Lindstrom will continue operating out of a middle relief role.
Dylan Axelrod held the Red Sox to two runs and four hits in six innings to pick up a win Monday.
It's just Axelrod's second win in nine outings this season, but he's given the White Sox five quality starts, plus two more in which he was pulled in the sixth having allowed three or fewer runs. He's now probably moved back ahead of Hector Santiago with John Danks due back and a rotation spot on the line.
Adam Dunn hit a three-run homer off Jon Lester in the White Sox's victory Monday.
The home run was his second off a lefty this year. He hit 15 off southpaws last season after going without a single homer off a left-hander in 2011. Overall, Dunn has 11 homers this year. He's batting .211 with 13 RBI in 16 games this month after coming in at .148 with 12 RBI in 24 games in April.
