White Sox's Carlos Rodon expected to see more time with Sale injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) The White Sox pitching staff got a little thinner on Saturday. The team announced ace Chris Sale will miss at least three weeks with a broken bone in his foot, leaving an open spot in the rotation for the time being.
General Manager Rick Hahn suggested Carlos Rodon , Brad Penny, Scott Carroll, and others could see more time in the rotation in the Cactus League this spring, reports ESPN.com.
"You make adjustments," manager Robin Ventura said. "You just keep going. I know guys would like to have him in there but it's not going to be that way. So you keep going, keep rolling. Next man up, fill in, get it done. When he’s back ready, he's going to come in and fill his spot."
Rodon may have the best chance to crack the starting rotation when the season begins, if Sale if out for an extended period of time.
"It doesn't change anything, just stay on the same path I've been on," Rodon said Saturday. "Just take it day by day and work just as hard."
Chris Sale lights-out in no-decision Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) White Sox stud left-hander Chris Sale performed in his last start of the season Wednesday about the same as he has in most of his outings this year - he was dominant.
That dominance, however, was not good enough to earn a win over visiting Detroit. He gave up just one run on four hits with 10 strikeouts in six innings, but received little run support. Sale lost a 1-0 lead when he yielded a sacrifice fly to Nick Castallenos in the sixth.
Sale finishes the year with an AL-best 2.17 ERA.
Chris Sale to be limited to one more start
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Chris Sale had his next start pushed back from Tuesday to Wednesday, as reported by MLB.com, eliminating the possibility of him making two starts in the season's final week. Wednesday's outing against the Tigers will be Sale's final start of the 2014 season.
Scott Carroll will toe the slab for the White Sox in a spot start on Tuesday. Sale will enter his final start with a 12-4 record and a 2.20 ERA.
Chris Sale gets knocked around Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale got knocked around Wednesday against the Royals.
Sale allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. The third inning proved to be problematic for Sale. After getting the first out of the inning, Sale put two men on base via the single. Lorenzo Cain made him pay, clubbed a three-run homer to center. Sale would give up an additional run during the inning on a single. Alcides Escobar would add to the scoring the following inning, belting a solo home run.
With the loss, Sale dropped to 12-4. He’ll take on the Tigers in his next start.
|2014 summary: Chris Sale was no slouch heading into his fifth season, but he hit the elite level in 2014. The hard-throwing White Sox lefty posted a 2.17 ERA and 0.97 WHIP, the former of which was his lowest as a starter, and the latter was his lowest in any season. Sale led all American League starters with at least 150 innings with a 14.1 percent swinging strike rate, which enabled him to strike out 10.8 batters per nine innings. A strained flexor muscle kept Sale out for more than a month, but even so, he ranked 10th among starters in standard Rotisserie value and 15th in Fantasy points. Sale's No. 4 rank among starters for Fantasy points per game is more indicative of his true value.|
Playing time status: Concerns over potential injuries have followed Sale over the course of his career, and he has yet to start more than 30 games in a season. What Sale might not start 32 or 33 games, he can make up for it with his efficiency, and he already has one 200 inning-plus season.
2015 outlook: Sale has taken his place among the top half-dozen starting pitchers. Even in leagues that prioritize hitters, he should be drafted within the first three rounds.
