Hudson in the house

The White Sox added two more pitchers from Class AAA Charlotte before Thursday's makeup game against the Cubs at Wrigley. Jhonny Nunez, who was up with the Sox in early August, is back in the bullpen. Daniel Hudson is the guy to keep an eye on. A fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft, Hudson stormed through the White Sox' farm system this year, going 14-5 with a 2.32 ERA in stops at Class A Kannapolis, A Winston-Salem, AA Birmingham and Charlotte. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound right-hander, who attended Old Dominion University, also had 166 strikeouts in 147 1/3 inning, the second-highest total in the minor leagues. The White Sox aren't sure when _ or if _ Hudson is going to start. But pitching coach Don Cooper strongly hinted the 22-year-old pitcher could take the mound soon if the Sox fail to mount a winning streak and put some heat on the first-place Tigers and second-place Twins. If the Sox build off Wednesday's win at Minnesota, Hudson is going to stay in the dugout. *Neither Jermaine Dye nor Alex Rios is in the starting lineup today. Dye is in a 6-for-48 slump; Rios is batting .156 (10-for-64) since being claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays. Scott Podsednik is starting in center field vs. the Cubs and Dewayne Wise is in right.
