Chicago White Sox
Former Cardinals infielder had been in minor leagues since his release from Houston.
Dayan Viciedo will likely hit behind Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko in Robin Ventura’s lineup – a middle of the order that could combine for 100 dingers under the right circumstances.
The baseball player’s body was found in a creek in O’Fallon last September.
Outfielder played for Hickman H.S. in Columbia and collegiately at the University of Miami.
Kent Gerst, 24, a graduate of Fort Zumwalt West High School, was a 2006 draft pick by the Chicago White Sox, and more recently played for the semi-pro Gateway Grizzlies in 2011.
He jokingly thanked the city for trading Kevin Youkilis – a gritty, beloved, core player for the Boston Red Sox for years – to Obama’s hometown Chicago White Sox this week.
David Freese homered, doubled and drove in three runs, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.
After another stellar outing from budding star Lance Lynn, veteran Jake Westbrook tries for his first win in a more than a month.
The 25-year-old Lynn struck out a career-high 12 despite back tightness to stay tied for the major league lead in wins.
Lance Lynn was a particularly unlikely candidate to become the first major league pitcher to reach 10 wins this season.
