|Chris Sale settles down, fans 13 in win |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7:22 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale struggled early on in his start against the Tigers Saturday, but settled down in a big way in a 6-3 win over.
Sale was tagged for three runs on a pair of first -inning home runs, but that was all the White Sox would manage in seven innings against Sale. Sale was pretty much untouchable from that point on, scattering six hits and a pair of walks while striking out a season-high 13 batters on 119 pitches in the win.
Sale improved his record to 11-3 with the win, while his ERA rose slightly to 2.11. His next start is set for Saturday against the Indians.

(8/24/14) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up four unearned runs on four hits and three walks in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-4 loss to the Yankees.
Sale surrendered all four runs after an error in the sixth inning, allowing him to pick up his fourth straight quality start. He owns a 2.03 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 165:29 K:BB ratio in 142 innings. Sale is scheduled to face the Tigers as part of a doubleheader Saturday.
|Chris Sale drops one against the Orioles |

(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.
|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.
