DETROIT (AP) - The Chicago White Sox purchased the contract of
former FGCU pitcher Chris Sale from Triple-A Charlotte before Wednesday's
game against the Detroit Tigers.
Sale was the 13th pick in June's amateur draft, and is the first
2010 draftee to make the major leagues. He has pitched 11 times
between Single-A Winston Salem and Charlotte, going 0-0 with a 2.61
ERA and 19 strikeouts in 10 1-3 innings.
Sale replaces starter Carlos Torres, who was sent back to
Charlotte after allowing five runs in six innings in the second
game of Tuesday's doubleheader between Detroit and Chicago.
