|Chris Sale should only miss one start|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12:17 pm ET) Sources close to White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale said Wednesday they expect he will only miss one start with "mild" shoulder tendinitis, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Sale was scratched from his start Wednesday against the Red Sox as a precaution, with Hector Santiago replacing him on the hill.

(5/21/13) White Sox starter Chris Sale was scratched from Wednesday's start against the Red Sox as a precautionary measure due to mild tendinitis in his left shoulder. He is expected to miss just one start.
Sale will be replaced Hector Santiago on Wednesday but is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Cubs. He has struck out 19 and has not allowed a run over his last 23 innings of work. Sale is 4-0 with a 1.18 ERA in his last five starts.
|Chris Sale extends scoreless streak to 23 innings|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) White Sox starter Chris Sale, who pitched a one-hit, complete game shutout his last time out, followed up with another dominant performance against the Angels Friday night.
Sale, who made his ninth start of the season, allowed just three hits over 7 2/3 innings of work as he earned his fifth win of the season. He struck out 12 and walked three in a 3-0 victory.
Sale has extended his scoreless streak to 23 innings. He has not allowed a run in his last two starts -- both coming against the Angels. Sale is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at home against the Red Sox. He is 3-0 with a 1.47 ERA in four starts at home this season.
|Chris Sale pitched with broken tooth|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) As if retiring the first 19 batters and finishing with a one-hitter wasn't enough, White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale had to go ahead and up the difficulty last Sunday against the Angels. Sale revealed Thursday that he was pitching with a cracked tooth that had become abcessed.
"What happened was I cracked the tooth in half on our plane trip coming back from [New York] going to Chicago and I bit into something and my tooth went one way," Sale told MLB.com. "So I actually pulled half of it out on the plane and got the rest of it taken care of."
Sale opted to get the tooth fixed after his start, so he could avoid having to miss a start.
"I wanted to do it after my start so I had enough time to get over it and be ready for my next start," Sale said. "I got put on laughing gas and pain medication. I was out of it for a couple days."
He says he is over the issue and does not expect to have any problems Friday, when he faces the Angels in a rematch at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
|Chris Sale has tooth removed|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) White Sox starter Chris Sale had an abscessed tooth removed Monday, one day after throwing a one-hit shutout against the Angels. He is still in line to make his next start on Friday against Anaheim -- again.
The left-hander is 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA in his past four outings.
|Outside of that weird mid-season "he's our closer now" tomfoolery, Chris Sale pitched a marvelous 2012, his first season in professional baseball as a starter. With a 3.05 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, Sale managed 17 wins and struck out exactly one batter per inning. We're willing to give him a pass on his second half downturn (he went from a 2.19 ERA in the first half to 4.03 in the second) because Sale nearly tripled the innings he threw the previous season. While the idea of saving his arm by converting Sale to a reliever was well-intentioned -- and a better plan than shutting him down at 160 while the team was in a playoff hunt -- there's no chance of it happening in 2013, as he's established as a starter and has shown he can throw 200 innings if needed. Consider Sale at least a top 20 starter and adjust accordingly based on your confidence in him improving on his 2012 numbers. He should be off the board by the time the middle rounds hit in most drafts. (Updated 12/5/12)|
