To prove every White Sox player has a clean slate, manager Robin Ventura is batting Alex Rios third and Adam Dunn fifth in Monday's exhibition opener against the Dodgers.

Furthermore, the Sox's lineup could be similar to the lineup they field for opening day April 6 at Texas.

"It could change, but the way I look at it, I like it," Ventura said Sunday. "That's why I wrote it that way."

Ventura acknowledged Rios, who hit just .227 with 13 home runs last season, in the third spot is the key.
