Judge Gives Uribe Permission To Attend Spring Training

Accused of shooting a Dominican farmer in October, White Sox shortstop Juan Uribe has received permission from a judge to attend spring training in Tucson, Ariz.

Under the judge's ruling, Uribe will no longer have to appear in court twice a month for the remainder of the case. Instead, he must put down a $15,400 deposit guaranteeing he will make his next scheduled court appearance, slated for March 17. "I am going to training tomorrow," Uribe told the AP late Wednesday. "I feel satisfied with the court's decision and I am ready to present myself when it's necessary."

Contreras To Start Opening Day

Not only will Mark Buehrle's streak of five consecutive Opening Day starts end on April 2 when the Sox host Cleveland, but as it sits right now he has slipped to the No. 3 spot in the starting rotation.

''Ozzie gave this to me a while ago,'' pitching coach Don Cooper said of the rotation order Tuesday. ''I have everything mapped out, working backward from the regular season to spring training and as it stands right now it's Jose Contreras, Jon Garland, Buehrle, Javier Vazquez and then whoever steps up and grabs that No. 5 spot.''

Uribe Will Be Late For Spring Training

White Sox shortstop Juan Uribe will be in a Dominican court Feb. 21, the same day his teammates will arrive in Arizona for spring training.

On Wednesday, the court set a hearing for that date for the defense team's "challenge for cause" in the case against the player.

Uribe, his brother Elpidio and a friend are accused of provoking a shooting in which two men were wounded Oct. 3 in Juan Baron, Dominican Republic, south of Santo Domingo.
