White Sox's Chris Sale given 'slim chance' to pitch Opening Day
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

White Sox manager Robin Ventura was not optimistic pitcher Chris Sale would be ready to pitch by Opening Day, reports ESPN.com.

“He was slated to go for Opening Day and there is a slim chance that he would be able to do that," Ventura said. "I would expect it not to be that way, but being that it's his ankle, we can treat that. It's not as though it’s his elbow where we would really be cautious."

Sale is recovering from a broken foot and if he is not ready by opening day, pitching coach Don Cooper said Brad Penny, Scott Carroll, Frankie Montas or Chris Beck would be given a chance to replace Sale.

"I think all of the guys that I've mentioned have a shot at making the rotation if [Sale] is not ready to go," Cooper said. "And then we'll make some adjustments to the schedule. Maybe it's me, but it feels like we've dealt with stuff like this before. That's OK, it is what it is. It sucks and I wish it didn't happen, but there are a lot of things people wish didn't happen. This is one with Chris and we'll deal with it."

White Sox's Carlos Rodon expected to see more time with Sale injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The White Sox pitching staff got a little thinner on Saturday. The team announced ace Chris Sale will miss at least three weeks with a broken bone in his foot, leaving an open spot in the rotation for the time being. 

General Manager Rick Hahn suggested Carlos Rodon , Brad Penny, Scott Carroll, and others could see more time in the rotation in the Cactus League this spring, reports ESPN.com.

"You make adjustments," manager Robin Ventura said. "You just keep going. I know guys would like to have him in there but it's not going to be that way. So you keep going, keep rolling. Next man up, fill in, get it done. When he’s back ready, he's going to come in and fill his spot."

Rodon may have the best chance to crack the starting rotation when the season begins, if Sale if out for an extended period of time.

"It doesn't change anything, just stay on the same path I've been on," Rodon said Saturday. "Just take it day by day and work just as hard."

White Sox's Jared Mitchel pushing to make opening day roster
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

White Sox prospect Jared Mitchell was disappointed he didn't make it to the majors in 2014, but he's not letting that keep him from pushing to make it this spring, reports MLB.com.

"I took it as disappointment and then kind of like straight to, 'Now that's your motivation.' That helps prepare you for where you need to be," Mitchell said. "If you take it the right way, take it in stride and use it as motivation, it can springboard me into a really good year this year."

Mitchell, the team's top pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, has the ability, but needs to get more consistent, according to some in management.

"Mitch's issue is that he has a different feel every day," said White Sox assistant general manager Buddy Bell. "He's got to trust what he can do, but certainly athletically, there's nobody better. He's as athletic as anyone we have."
