Game Preview:

Starting the game for the White Sox will be Jeff Samardzija and for the Mariners will be Hisashi Iwakuma on this St. Patrick’s Day.

Iwakuma has no decisions this spring in one start for Seattle, where he’s pitched two innings with a 0.00 ERA. He’s recorded no strikeouts and has allowed no hits in that lone outing on March 7 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

For the White Sox, Samardzija will be making his second start this spring as well for the White Sox, who is in his first season with the organization. Last season Samardzija played for the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics.

Samardzija enters this spring outing with three innings under his belt with a 6.00 ERA in his one outing. Samardzija against the the Oakland Athletics on March 8 allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk.

He also recorded one strikeout in the win.

This is a fine spring matchup between the two improved ball clubs. I would really like to see both pitchers get in at least three innings of work Tuesday in Cactus League play. They both are two solid pitchers and it would be good for the White Sox to face a quality of pitcher like Iwakuma before the start of the season, which is just 20 days away.

Daryl Van Schouwen of The Chicago Sun-Times tweeted who the White Sox will be using on the mound for Tuesday:

The starting lineup for the White Sox on Tuesday is scheduled to be:

1. Adam Eaton (CF)
2. Melky Cabrera (LF)
3. Jose Abreu (1B)
4. Adam LaRoche (DH)
5. Avisail Garcia (RF)
6. Alexei Ramirez (SS)
7. Conor Gillaspie (3B)
8. Tyler Flowers (C)
9. Micah Johnson (2B)

Since the release of their first line, Eaton has been scratched from the lineup with an illness.

Here is the new lineup via tweet by Van Schouwen:

My “Pick to Click” for this game is Johnson who is batting .458 this spring with 11 hits (one double, one triple, one home run) with five RBIs and three walks in 10 games.

In his last two games Johnson is a combined 4-for-6 with two runs, as he’s making a very strong case to be the starting second baseman for the White Sox when camp breaks. If my two cents means anything, my vote goes to Johnson as well to be the starting second baseman when Opening Day arrives.

The White Sox enter this game with a 5-7 record and the Mariners are 6-7.
