Rookie Roundup

On Yankee centerfielder Brett Gardner-"That," Swisher said, "is the fastest white dude I've ever seen."

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen commented on 19 year old rookie sensation Dayan Viciedo after slugging an oppo dong off former White Sox pitcher Jon Garland-''The Cuban Tank has looked very good, and he played better third base [against Arizona],'' Guillen said. ''It will take a little time to get him better [defensively].''

Kenshin Kawakami has been trying to tap into his inner Greg Maddux after throwing 18 strikes in 29 pitches and notched one strikeout with no walks. "I was a big fan of his,” Kawakami said through an interpreter Friday. “I really wanted to become a pitcher like him. I tried to emulate his pitches, but realized it was almost impossible.”
