The decision will put Buehrle on four days rest and against the Devil Rays, while Garland will be pitching on seven days rest and face the Tigers. Bartolo Colon and Esteban Loaiza will remain on schedule, pitching in the first two games of the Devil Rays series.
Along with that, Paul Konerko will find himself back in the starting lineup in at least one of the three games against Tampa Bay. Manuel says the move has little to do with Konerko's game-tying, 11th-inning homer in Wednesday's win over the Twins.
In 70 games, the 27-year-old Konerko, who has been rumored to be involved in a trade for Baltimore's ACE Sidney Ponson, is batting .189 with four homers and 18 RBIs.
