The Chicago White Sox will start employing their projected starting pitchers in exhibition games starting Friday.
But Thursday marks what could be an important start for left-hander Scott Snodgress, who will face Milwaukee at Maryvale.
Snodgress didn't allow a run in his first appearance Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Thursday marks one of the last times he'll get an extended look in major league spring training before preparing for his minor league season.

Gordon Beckham will bat in the second spot, and Angel Sanchez will start at shortstop as he tries to secure the backup middle infield job.
Here's the Sox's lineup:
30 Alejandro De Aza – CF
15 Gordon Beckham – 2B
7 Jeff Keppinger – DH
14 Paul Konerko – 1B
12 Conor Gillaspie – 3B
21 Tyler Flowers – C
29 Jared Mitchell – LF
5 Angel Sanchez – SS
82 Keenyn Walker - RF
73 Scott Snodgress - P
