The White Sox made their Opening Day roster official Wednesday with moves that included the placement of Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list.

As expected, both Lastings Milledge and Brent Lillibridge made the club as bench players, while the pitching staff will go with 11 arms to start the year instead of the 12 manager Ozzie Guillen had hoped to have.

Also going on the 15-day disabled list was infielder/outfielder Dayan Viciedo. Both DL moves were retroactive to March 22.

Jeff Marquez, who was expected to be the 12th pitcher until some late-spring struggles, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte. In one last move, catcher Donny Lucy was reassigned to minor league camp.

The final roster is as follows:

•  Pitchers (11): Mark Buehrle, Edwin Jackson, John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Phil Humber, Matt Thornton, Sergio Santos, Jesse Crain, Chris Sale, Will Ohman and Tony Pena.

•  Catchers (2): A.J. Pierzynski, Ramon Castro.

•  Infielders (8): Paul Konerko, Gordon Beckham, Alexei Ramirez, Brent Morel, Mark Teahen, Omar Vizquel, Lillibridge and Adam Dunn.

•  Outfielders (4): Juan Pierre, Alex Rios, Carlos Quentin and Milledge.

The White Sox open the season Friday afternoon at Cleveland with Mark Buehrle on the mound.
