Twins Vs. White Sox Lineups: Samuel Deduno Looks To Build On His Last Start

The Minnesota Twins begin a three-game series vs. the Chicago White Sox on Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago. Samuel Deduno, who will be looking to build on a strong start his last time out, will be on the mound for the Twins.

Deduno's previous outing was his best of the season, as he pitched seven shutout innings against the Seattle Mariners on Aug. 29. He struck out a season-high nine batters in the game and didn't walk anyone, while allowing only two hits. He'll face tougher competition on Monday, but the White Sox have yet to face the 29-year-old righty in his career, which could work in Deduno's favor. Here are the full lineups:

Twins:

1. Ben Revere CF
2. Darin Mastroianni LF
3. Joe Mauer C
4. Josh Willingham DH
5. Justin Morneau 1B
6. Trevor Plouffe 3B
7. Chris Parmelee RF
8. Jamey Carroll 2B
9. Pedro Florimon SS

White Sox:

1. Alejandro De Aza CF
2. Kevin Youkilis 3B
3. Adam Dunn DH
4. Paul Konerko 1B
5. Alex Rios RF
6. A.J. Pierzynski C
7. Dayan Viciedo LF
8. Alexei Ramirez SS
9. Gordon Beckham 2B

The White Sox will send Hector Santiago (2-1, 3.91 ERA) to the hill to make his first career start.. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 p.m. CT.
