From Sportsline:News: The White Sox will open the season with rookie Alexei Ramirez starting in center field, according to MLB.com. He hit .358 with two home runs in 67 at-bats this spring.
Analysis: Ramirez will likely man center only until Jerry Owens can return from a tear in his groin. The Cuban can also man a few infield positions, though, so he has plenty of value in AL-only leagues. Mixed-league owners shouldn't completely keep him off their radar either.
If he hits better than Uribe, and thats not much askin, he will start even after Owens gets back.
And if his OBP is good enough he could hit first or second. But in that lineup only the 3-4 is set in stone.
