The Chicago White Sox will play in a spring training game every day this week, continuing a span of what will be 15 consecutive days of baseball for the White Sox to close out spring training.

As for this week, here is a look at the schedule of the White Sox in Cactus League play:

• Monday, March 23: at San Diego Padres (9-10) @ Peoria Stadium

• Thursday, March 26: vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (10-6) @ Camelback Ranch

• Friday, March 27: at Chicago Cubs (9-11) @ Sloan Park

• Saturday, March 28: vs. Oakland Athletics (13-8) @ Camelback Ranch

• Sunday, March 29: at Cleveland Indians (8-11) @ Goodyear Ballpark

All seven games this week will air on MLB.TV, plus games will be aired locally, and some on the MLB Network.

Thus far this spring the White Sox are 7-9 in Cactus League play, four games back of the Cactus League leaders Kansas City Royals, who are also the reigning American League champions.

In their most recent game on Sunday, the White Sox lost to the Milwaukee Brewers, 13-4.

The White Sox are also scheduled to face Jason Vargas of the Royals this week, along with Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

As for Quintana, Monday’s starter for the White Sox, he’ll enter his fifth spring outing with a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings pitched before the start against the Padres.

Quintana this spring has held his opponents to a .146 batting average, allowing just six hits and two earned runs thus far. He’s also walked just one batter.

Danks, Tuesday’s starter, this spring has made two starts, with a 6.35 ERA in 5.2 innings pitched. Danks’ opponents have a .333 batting average against him as he’s allowed eight hits and four earned runs. He’s walked none.

The White Sox have yet to announce the rest of their starting pitching this week.

This should be an exciting week of White Sox baseball for the fact we’ll get a chance to see every game in a week for the first time this spring. This should give our days a little but more of a regular season feel. Opening Day will be on Monday, April 6 when the White Sox will face the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
