White Sox starter Chris Sale moves to 2-0 with win on Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) White Sox starter Chris Sale improved to 2-0 on Saturday with six strong innings against the Tigers.|
Sale allowed two runs on four hits and struck out six to earn the victory.
J.D. Martinez connected for a solo homer off Sale.
"Man, yeah, It really takes all the pressure off," Sale said about his run support. "You still have to perform and get through it. I don't think I've ever seen 12 runs before. It was impressive."
Sale's next start is schedule for Thursday against the Royals.
White Sox move up Jeff Samardzija, Chris Sale in pitching rotation
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) With the White Sox gearing up for a three-game series against the Tigers, manager Robin Ventura moved up Jeff Samardzija's start to Friday, with Chris Sale starting Saturday, reports ESPN.com.
The White Sox have an off day Thursday after their two-game series against the Indians and Ventura is considering starting Jose Quintana on Sunday.
"There's a possibility [Jose Quintana] comes back there," Ventura said. "There's an off day so you can see him making that one, or you can have Hector Noesi at that point. There's a chance to be able to do that. As of right now, we don't know who that's going to be -- it's to be determined at this point."
White Sox ace Chris Sale strikes out eight, wins debut Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale picked up a win in his season debut Sunday, giving up just one earned run on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out eight in his team's 6-2 victory over the Twins.
Sale (1-0) got a late start to the season due to a foot injury but looked to be in top form Sunday. His only blemish came in the third inning, when the Twins managed to wrap a pair of doubles around his first out of the inning; Sale came back to strike out the final two batters of the third.
"You learn to enjoy those kind of matchups when you're facing the best the game has to offer," Twins manager Paul Molitor said after the game, per MLB.com. "You know it's going to be challenging, but that's what players want to be. They want to be challenged. He's tough. He has got that funky delivery and arm slot and three plus-pitches."
The White Sox have a pair of off-days next week, so Sale's next start isn't set in stone, but he should be set to face the Tigers in Detroit next weekend.
White Sox reinstate Sunday starter Chris Sale from disabled list
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and is set to make his season debut Sunday against the Twins.
Sale was unable to start on Opening Day due to an avulsion fracture in his foot, but he winds up missing only one start at the beginning of the seaosn. He is expected to be limited to six innings or about 90 pitches in Sunday's start.
The White Sox are favorites (-140) against the Twins Sunday.
White Sox send down Carlos Sanchez to clear space for Chris Sale
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) In order to clear the way for ace Chris Sale on Sunday, the White Sox optioned second baseman Carlos Sanchez down to Triple-A Charlotte following Saturday's game against Minnesota, per ESPN. The 22-year-old Venezuelan prospect went 2 for 3 on April 8 -- his only appearance of the season.
|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. Looks like 2015 won't be the year either. He fractured his foot in late February and will miss most of spring training, pushing back his start of the season to mid-April. Because he figures to miss just a start or two, though, he should still be one of the first 10 starting pitchers drafted.
2015 outlook: Sale was looking like an early second-round pick prior to the injury, so if it pushes him into the third round, he's a steal. Keep in mind Clayton Kershaw missed all of April with a back injury last year, but nobody was complaining about his production in the end.
