Move over Mike Leake, Chris Sale may be on the way.

As impressive as Leake's complete skipping of the minor leagues was this season, an even more impressive feat would be pitching in the big leagues the same year you're drafted.

The Chicago Tribune 's Mark Gonzalez speculates the White Sox's first-round pick from June's draft could be making his debut as soon as tomorrow.

Sale has made 11 appearances in the minors, including seven at Triple-A Charlotte, where he has a 2.84 ERA with 15 strikeouts and four walks in 6 1/3 innings.

Sale was taken No. 13 overall out of Florida Gulf Coast University and signed less than two weeks following the draft. Only two of the players drafted ahead of Sale have even signed.

Gonzalez notes White Sox assistant general manager Rick Hahn scouted Sale two weeks ago.

The left-hander projects as a starter, but has been used in relief in the minors after he threw 103 innings in college. Coincidently, Monday the Cubs' Casey Coleman became the first-ever Florida Gulf Coast University prospect to make the big leagues. Coleman was drafted in the 15th round of the 2008 draft.
