Chris Sale SP CWS 6 Days

Chris Sale yielded three runs over five innings Friday against the Indians to improve to 3-0 on the year.

Sale wasn't at his best, needing 105 pitches to make it through his five innings of work, but he managed to keep his team in the ballgame. The lanky left-hander struck out five and walked a pair in the victory. He'll look for his fourth win next week against the Red Sox.

Chris Sale allowed three runs over 7 1/3 innings in an Opening Day win over the Twins on Monday.

Sale gave up five hits and one walk while striking out eight batters. He fanned four out of the final six batters he faced, so he went out on a high note for fantasy owners. There's every reason to believe that the slender southpaw will be one of the AL's best starters again this season.

Chris Sale allowed two earned runs in 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's start against the Rockies.

Sale wasn't sharp early, allowing a double and two singles to start the first inning. He was chased in the fourth after allowing two singles, one of which was erased by a double play. Overall, he allowed six hits and struck out three. He now has a 4.58 ERA in 17 2/3 spring innings, but should still be expected to rank among the best starters in the game.

Chris Sale racked up five strikeouts in Saturday's Cactus League victory over the Dodgers.

Sale was tagged for three runs, one earned, on two hits and two walks over his 4 1/3 innings of work. He has compiled a 4.50 ERA and 13/3 K/BB ratio over 14 innings on the spring. He's slated to pitch on Opening Day for the White Sox and should once again be good for solid peripherals and well over 200 strikeouts this season.

Chris Sale didn't allow a run in 4 1/3 innings in Monday's start against the Brewers.

Chris Sale will start on Opening Day against the Twins on March 31.

That was the assumption until now, but it's finally official. Sale is coming off a 3.07 ERA and 226/46 K/BB ratio over 214 1/3 innings last season and should be considered a fantasy ace once again.

Chris Sale allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings of work on Wednesday against the Padres.

Sale allowed three singles in the first before Nick Hundley capped off a four-run inning with a three-run home run. The lefty also allowed a run in both the second and third inning on ground outs. It's nothing to worry about, as Sale is still expected to rank among the best starters in baseball once again.

Chris Sale looked to be in mid-season form in his Cactus League debut on Friday, fanning four over 2 2/3 scoreless innings in a loss to the Dodgers.

Sale allowed just one hit in the impressive effort. The 24-year-old southpaw was among the game's elite starters in 2013, posting a 3.07 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 226/46 K/BB ratio over 214 1/3 innings, and looks poised to be even better this coming season. The only thing holding down his fantasy value will be the poor outlook for wins with the inept White Sox offense backing him.

A general manager told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that the White Sox are not shopping Chris Sale.

Chicago will listen to offers for its ace left-hander, but it'll take a massive return to actually pluck him away. Sale had an outstanding 3.07 ERA and 226/46 K/BB ratio in 214 1/3 innings this past season for the White Sox and is under club control through 2019 on a team-friendly contract. The Pale Hose would prefer to build around him.

A GM told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that "teams are pushing Chicago to consider" trading Chris Sale.

In other words, the trade proposals have been plentiful and pretty attractive. Sale is one of the best pitchers in baseball and under club control through 2019, but if the White Sox can swing multiple top prospects they might pull the trigger on a deal this winter. Sale, 24, posted a 3.07 ERA and 226/46 K/BB ratio in 214 1/3 innings this past season for Chicago.
