White Sox pitcher Chris Sale strikes out 13 in rehab start
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale threw six innings Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits with 13 strikeouts on 90 pitches against Class-A hitters.
"I felt really good. It was nice to get back on the mound and do what I am supposed to do, honestly," Sale told reporters after the outing, per MLB.com. "Stinks being on rehab the whole time so it was nice to be a pitcher again and be in a game situation. My breaking ball was kind of [lousy] today. I left it up a lot arm side, probably because I was rushing a little bit. But other than that, everything felt fine."
Sale is recovering from a foot injury suffered in late February and has thrown simulated games as a part of his rehab. He appears on track to make his regular-season debut April 12 and will make another start Monday in an attempt to throw about 100 pitches without issue.

White Sox SP Chris Sale could pitch in minors game in five days
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale (foot), who threw a short bullpen on Wednesday, threw a 75-pitch simulated game on Friday, according to Comcast SportsNet Chicago. Sale is rehabbing from a broken foot, and called his outing a "big confidence builder." He could start in a minor-league game in approximately five days.
White Sox SP Chris Sale tosses short bullpen Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale threw a short bullpen session Wednesday as he continued to progress toward an April 12 debut, ESPNChicago.com reports.
Sale is rehabbing from a broken foot. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch three times in "game-like settings," with his first action expected to come in a simulated game Friday. He could also see time in a Cactus League game and one start in extended spring training before making his debut, if he continues to progress well.
|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.
