Montanez update and Chisox lineup

Outfielder Lou Montanez played his first injury rehab game today with the Gulf Coast League Orioles. He started in left field against the GCL Rays and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

Montanez, who's recovering from a strained oblique, told me in a text message that he felt fine and "did everything without pain." He's expected to play in at least three more games down there before reporting to another affiliate.

It's ex-Oriole day at Camden Yards. Besides the familiar faces at today's Hall of Fame luncheon, I've also seen Ben McDonald, Steve Stone and Mike Bordick.

Here's the White Sox's lineup:
Pierre LF
Lillibridge CF
Konerko 1B
Quentin RF
Kotsay DH
Ramirez SS
Pierzynski C
Viciedo 3B
Beckham 2B

Danks LHP
