The most pressing matters on Tuesday will occur away from the diamond at Surprise Stadium. Alex Gordon is scheduled to take batting practice for the first time since wrist surgery. Omar Infante will also test his sore elbow in batting practice. And Chris Young will throw a session of live batting practice.

But there still is a game to be played. The White Sox come to town this afternoon. Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals. Brandon Finnegan will make his Cactus League debut behind him. Both will throw two innings.

Here is the lineup:

1. Jarrod Dyson, LF

2. Mike Moustakas, 3B.

3. Lorenzo Cain, CF.

4. Eric Hosmer, 1B.

5. Kendrys Morales, DH.

6. Alex Rios, RF.

7. Erik Kratz, C.

8. Ryan Jackson, SS.

9. Christian Colon, 2B.
