White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen ready to make a move to shore up his bullpen?

In their ongoing quest to find someone — anyone — other than Bobby Jenks who can come out of the bullpen and get outs, the White Sox could be set to make another move or two.


Though Ozzie Guillen hasn’t come out and said there will be changes, as he did preceding all other moves this season, the manager was clearly perturbed that Bret Prinz couldn’t get loose Wednesday after throwing 16 pitches Tuesday.


“He call me in the middle of the game, called down in the middle of the game, and said he couldn’t get loose,” Guillen said of Prinz.


Prinz, who has an 8.10 ERA in 3 1/3 innings with the Sox, could soon be optioned to the minors to make room for Mike MacDougal, who may have solved his control problems while at Triple-A Charlotte. MacDougal, whom the Sox would love to have back on the roster, considering how he performed for them last year, has walked just one in three scoreless innings with the Knights.


“I believe once Mike MacDougal goes down and gets some innings under his belt and gets his command back and his confidence back, he will be an integral part of our bullpen,” general manager Ken Williams said when MacDougal was optioned to the minors June 4.

Speaking of Control


John Danks won the fifth starter’s job in spring training by attacking hitters but has recently fallen into a trap of what he calls trying to “nit-pick” too early in the counts.


“I just have to get ahead of batters a little more efficiently,” Danks said after being pulled because he threw 103 pitches in just 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against Philadelphia. “Try to make them put it in play a little earlier than 3-and-2.”


Guillen will try to stress to his young starter the importance of getting ahead in the count.


“I’m concerned about him,” said Guillen, who is monitoring the rookie’s workload carefully. “He’s throwing good. He’s always deep in the count, heavy pitch count every time. We try to make sure he stays away from heavy counts. He’s always in 3-and-2 with people.”
