|Chris Sale drops one against the Orioles |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/18/14) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale turned in a quality start Monday.
Sale allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked two during the outing. Home runs proved to be a big issue for Sale during the start. A solo shot by J.J. Hardy opened up the scoring in the second inning. Nelson Cruz would add another run in the sixth on a solo homer. Sale gave up his third run in the fifth, after a single and double drove in Nick Markakis.
With the loss, Sale dropped to 10-3. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
|Chris Sale racks up 12 strikeouts vs. Giants |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/13/14) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale was denied a win Tuesday despite giving up four hits and two walks in eight scoreless innings and striking out 12 in his team's 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Giants.
Sale continued his dominance Tuesday, posting 12 strikeouts for the third time in his last seven starts. It was his second time in four starts delivering eight scoreless innings, but the bullpen blew the lead in the ninth. Sale owns a 2.01 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 150:24 K:BB ratio in 130 innings. He's slated to face the Blue Jays Sunday.
|White Sox make slight changes to starting rotation |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) The White Sox made some tweaks to the starting rotation following Sunday's game against the Mariners, MLB.com reports.
The team scratched Scott Carroll for Wednesday at San Francisco due to a blister in his hand. As a result, the rest of the rotation was pushed up a day. Jose Quintana will start in his place on Wednesday, followed by Hector Noesi Friday against Toronto, John Danks Saturday and Chris Sale on Sunday.
|Chris Sale performs well, but takes rare loss Wednesday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) White Sox ace Chris Sale pitched well Wednesday afternoon, but not well enough to avoid his first loss since June 12.
Sale surrendered a two-run homer to Adam Rosales in the second inning and his offense was stymied. The lefty finished with two runs allowed on three hits in six innings, but he walked two and struck out nine. He has 13 quality starts in 16 outings this season.
He will try to earn his first win since July 26 when he pitches Tuesday in San Francisco.
|Chris Sale fails to factor into the decision |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/2/14) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale didn't factor into the decision Friday night at home against the Twins. The right-hander yielded five runs -- four earned on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings of a 10-8 defeat.
Sale allowed four-plus runs for the first time since June 7. He owns a 2.09 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP over 17 starts (116 innings). Sale will make his next start Wednesday at home against Texas.
|For the most part, Chris Sale's second season in the White Sox's rotation went even better the first, which was quite an accomplishment. While filing his second straight low-3.00s ERA (3.07), Sale pitched 22 1/3 more innings and lowered his WHIP from 1.14 to 1.07, thanks to a diminished walk rate. The only blemish on his 2013 season was an 11-14 record, which was the product of the fifth-lowest level of run support among qualifying starters in the majors. Even with the losing record, Sale finished among the top 15 starting pitchers in both standard Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats. If Sale can get better run support and turn in another 200-plus inning campaign, he could finish among the top 10 starters in 2014. Probably the biggest deterrent to Sale getting drafted as a top 10 starter is the perception of many that his mechanics put him at risk of an elbow injury. While that risk may exist, last season's increased velocity and improved performance leaves us without any evidence that Sale is on the verge of an injury or performance decline.
