Pena back in lineup; Rocco in right

3

October

Carlos Pena is back in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

Pena, who left Thursday's game in the second inning with slightly blurred vision in his left eye, will be at his regular spot at first base; Pena had accidentally scratched the eye Wednesday night at home, and doctors had assured him he'd be back to normal in 24 hours. 

Pena said after taking ground balls he was better but still not 100 percent and would be re-evaluated just before game time.

Manager Joe Maddon has decided to put Rocco Baldelli in rightfield, pitting several right-handed hitters and switch-hitters against White Sox lefty Mark Buehrle.
