White Sox starter Chris Sale takes no-decision despite eight strong IP
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) White Sox starter Chris Sale allowed one run on four hits and fanned seven in eight innings Monday but had to settle for a no-decision against the Indians.|
The one run allowed by Sale was a sacrifice fly off the bat of Jose Ramirez in the third inning.
The outing was Sale's second straight where he allowed two or fewer runs in eight innings of work.
Sale's next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Twins.
White Sox SP Chris Sale twirls 11 K gem vs. Milwaukee
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale went eight innings strong and struck 11 to earn his third win of the season Tuesday night against Milwaukee.
Sale (3-1) allowed a run to score on a ground out in the first inning and permitted a solo home to Elian Herrera in the fifth for his only damage of the evening. He was charged with two earned runs on three hits and two walks over eight innings. Of his 110 pitches, 77 were strikes.
"Every hitter you looked up and you felt like it was 0-2. He was ahead of every hitter. He's got a nice arsenal," Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.
Sale lowered his ERA 5.09, with a 1.36 WHIP through six starts. He owns a 36:9 K:BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings. His next start will come Monday against Cleveland.
White Sox pitching coach: Chris Sale's trying to do too much
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale has had a rough go of it in his last couple of outings. Sale has allowed 10 runs in his last 10 innings with just six strikeouts. Pitching coach Don Cooper thinks he has the answer to his struggles, according to MLB.com.
"You see his velocity up a mile or a mile and a half and you see the walks. He's just overdoing it," said Cooper. "Trying to do too much: not pitching, more throwing. We need more of a combination.
"He can do that from time to time. He has reached back -- and literally what I've seen is he's really reaching back. Also, the other day, he got a little bit out of control [with] his emotions and poise and got frustrated. That's it: He's overdoing it."
Cooper also noted Sale has some mechanical issues to work out.
"It's out of the norm for him," Cooper said. "When we do have a chance to sit down with him, we are going to show him -- and it's going to be real obvious when he sees it what's going on."
Sale has a 5.93 ERA in four starts to begin the season.
White Sox SP Chris Sale drops appeal of five-game suspension
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale has dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension and will begin serving it Thursday, according to CSN Chicago. Sale was suspended for his actions during an April 23 brawl with the Royals.
Sale took a no-decision in his fifth start of the season Wednesday against the Tigers. He was slated to make his next start Monday at Milwaukee, but he will not be eligible to return until Tuesday. Sale is expected to start the next day after his suspension ends, per the Chicago Sun-Times.
White Sox ace Chris Sale not sharp once again on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) It's not very often that White Sox starter Chris Sale has a bad start. It's even less often that he has back-to-back rough outings. But that's what happened on Wednesday against the Tigers.
After getting knocked around by the Twins in his last start on April 30, Sale gave up five runs on seven hits, walking a career-matching-high five walks in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against Detroit. This is the first time since 2012 that Sale has had consecutive non-quality starts.
"You're going to have good ones, you're going to have bad ones," Sale said, per MLB.com. "You're going to have a few good ones in a row, you're going to have a few bad ones in a row."
In his last two starts, Sale has surrendered an eye-popping 13 earned runs in just 8 1/3 innings. Is there reason for concern here? The team doesn't exactly think so.
"I think he's going to be all right," manager Robin Ventura said. "I think when he doesn't think too much and he just goes out and pitches is when he's at his best."
|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.
