Friday's White Sox lineup behind starting pitcher Dylan Covey is: Tim Anderson (SS), Tyler Saladino (2B), Jose Abreu (1B), Todd Frazier (DH), Avisail Garcia (RF), Matt Davidson (3B), Willy Garcia (LF), Kevan Smith (C), Leury Garcia (CF).

Left fielder Willy Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to fill in while Melky Cabrera is on paternity leave. Cabrera is expected to rejoin the White Sox when they open a series at the New York Yankees on Monday night.
