Couple of newsworthy items from Ozzie's pregame press chat Wednesday: *The Sox are still missing Bobby Jenks, who has been battling kidney stones. Ozzie initially wasn't sure when Jenks would be back, but trainer Herm Schneider reports the closer had the remaining stone “blasted out.” Jenks could be ready to pitch Thursday, but more likely Friday. *Alexei Ramirez is still out with a sprained ankle, and it's looking like a Friday return as well. Ramirez has batted second for most of the season, but rookie Gordon Beckham is thriving in that spot. When Ramirez returns, he'll bat sixth or seventh and Beckham will stay in the No. 2 spot.
