Following a 4-2 homestand, the Chicago White Sox take the American League’s best record on the road this week for a six-game trip that starts tonight in Texas.

The fifth day has rolled around in the Sox rotation and Miguel Gonzalez will get another audition for that spot tonight in Arlington. Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte, where he’s gone 1-0 with a 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA in four starts this year. This will be his second time up with the big club in 2016. He gave up five runs and 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings on April 25 against the Toronto Blue Jays and took a no-decision in the 7-5 White Sox victory. Manager Robin Ventura says that while Gonzalez will get the start today, he’s made no decision on Gonzalez’s role beyond tonight.

The Rangers will counter with right-hander Colby Lewis, whom the Sox faced in Chicago on April 23. Lewis gave up only one earned run in six innings that day, but did walk four batters while striking out three.
