Twins-White Sox Preview

(AP) -- Following horrendous 2015 campaigns, Mat Latos and Ricky Nolasco gave their respective rotations an early boost before coming back to Earth the last time out.

Latos appears to have an easy landing spot Friday night against a Minnesota Twins team he dominated last month as the Chicago White Sox try to avoid a season high-tying third straight loss in the opener of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.

After going 4-10 with a 4.95 ERA for three clubs last season, Latos (4-0, 1.84 ERA) allowed two runs while winning his first four starts. However, he finally looked vulnerable Saturday when he gave up four over five innings in an 8-7 win at Baltimore.
