 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -Chicago White Sox third baseman Joe Crede missed an exhibition game against the Texas Rangers on Friday night because of a bruised left ankle.
Crede said he hoped to recover in time for the season opener.
The third baseman injured the ankle on Thursday, when he fouled a ball off his foot against the Arizona Diamondbacks. X-rays taken after the game showed no damage.
``It's still a little swollen, but it's kind of day-to-day right now. I feel good about where we're at right now with the injury, but I'm not real worried about it,'' Crede said. ``It's nothing out of the ordinary.''
Crede's injury came a day after he was named the opening day starter at third base for the White Sox, winning a competition against Josh Fields. He was hitting only .179 entering Thursday.
``I expect him to be in the opening day lineup. That's why I told him to stay in the clubhouse and continue to do the treatment,'' manager Ozzie Guillen said. ``He was a lot better. I was a little scared. He got hit pretty good.''
After hitting 30 home runs two seasons ago, Crede played only 47 games last season and hit .217 before having back surgery.
