      White Sox SP Chris Sale strikes out seven in win

      White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale (13-11) gave up one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out seven in Friday's win over Detroit. It speaks to how remarkable Sale has been that a season in which he ranks second in the league in strikeouts can be considered an off year. Sale posted the highest ERA of his career in 2015 and his highest WHIP since 2012. Sale's 2015 was three dazzling months sandwiched by three months of performances below his standard. From May through July, Sale posted a 7-5 record with a 2.80 ERA and 0.98 WHIP. In April, August and September Sale was 6-6 with a 4.16 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.

      White Sox SP Chris Sale loses fourth straight Thursday

      White Sox left-hander Chris Sale (12-11) made it four straight losses and six consecutive starts without a win Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight Yankees across seven innings. His one hiccup came on a Carlos Beltran three-run bomb that ultimately led to the defeat. The 12-11 record is unfair to Sale, as he is easily one of the best pitchers in baseball. His .326 BABIP and 2.61 xFIP indicate that he's been unlucky this season and he's a great candidate to bounce back next year. His 1.10 WHIP with 267 strikeouts are no slouch numbers.

      White Sox SP Chris Sale struggles Friday against the Indians

      White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale struggled again Friday night, allowing seven runs (one earned) on eight hits, walking three and striking out nine over seven innings of a 12-1 loss to Cleveland. Sale (12-10, 3.47 ERA) pitched very well with the exception of the third inning where he gave up six runs. Thankfully for his fantasy owners, a Carlos Sanchez error made all six of those runs unearned, but Sale has not been as dominant lately as he was earlier in the year. He needed 116 pitches (75 for strikes) to cover the seven innings, and he wasn't consistently hitting his spots. He is still piling up strikeouts because his stuff is still dazzling, but he'll have to try and recapture his command to be the true ace he can be at his best.

      White Sox ace Chris Sale pounded by Twins again Sunday

      White Sox usually-dominant left-hander Chris Sale continued his mysterious struggles against Minnesota on Sunday. Sale has now allowed 27 runs in 33 innings to the Twins this season after they plated six against him Sunday in just three innings. The southpaw allowed nine hits along the way and whiffed three. His issues were immediate. A Miguel Sano single scored one run in the first and a Torii Hunter blast added three. Sale then retired nine in a row, but four straight singles added two more runs. He did not come out for the fourth inning. The poor performance raised his ERA to 3.55.

      White Sox's Erik Johnson starting Sunday, Chris Sale pushed to Monday

      The White Sox made a slight change to their pitching rotation Thursday. The team announced starting pitcher Erik Johnson will start Sunday against the Royals, which will bump Chris Sale to Monday against the Indians. Johnson, who was added to the roster Tuesday, will make his season debut Sunday after a stellar season for Triple-A Charlotte. He went 11-8 with a 2.37 ERA in 23 outings (22 starts). He also had 136 strikeouts in 132 2/3 innings. Sale is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in two starts against Cleveland this season. He is 7-1 with a 2.42 ERA in 12 starts this season with five days of rest.

      White Sox SP Chris Sale sub-par at Target Field again

      To Superman, it's kryptonite. To Chris Sale, it's Target Field. The home of the Twins continued to haunt the White Sox ace Tuesday night. He allowed four runs on nine hits in just 6 1/3 innings with one walk and his usual 10 strikeouts. Sale was fine outside a miserable second inning in which he yielded run-scoring hits to Eduardo Escobar, Kurt Suzuki and Brian Dozier. A Chicago rally prevented him from taking the loss. The super lefty has been far from super at Minnesota, where he has surrendered 17 earned runs in 16 innings this season and been forced to accept three of his seven losses on the season.

      White Sox SP Chris Sale endures another rough outing Tuesday

      White Sox starter Chris Sale struggled again in his outing against the Rays on Tuesday. The 2015 All-Star allowed seven runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out nine, but suffered his seventh loss of the season in the 11-3 defeat. Sale (9-7) got off to a bad start in this one, as he allowed a two-run home run to Logan Forsythe in the top of the first inning. He settled in after that, retiring 10 of the next 11 batters to face him. But he served up a solo shot to Mikie Mahtook in the fifth, before giving up four more in a five-run sixth inning. This makes back-to-back starts in which Sale has allowed seven runs. The two rough outings have lifted his season ERA to a rather pedestrian 3.52 clip.
