Chris Sale scratched for White Sox after ‘clubhouse incident’
Chris Sale was called upon to stop the bleeding for the Chicago White Sox who have lost eight of their last nine games. However, it appears that Chris Sale has been scratched from his start tonight.
With trade rumors swirling around the White Sox and Chris Sale, initial reactions were that there was a trade lined up for the ace left hander, but according to initial reports, Sale had a cold and is not well enough to pitch tonight against the Detroit Tigers.
However according to MLB Network reporter Jon Morosi, Sale was not believed to actually be sick.
Morosi laterreported Sale was involved in a “clubhouse incident” before the game.
The team confirmed that an incident took place but that it was “non-physical in nature.”
Multiple reports also say Sale has not been traded.
In his place, Matt Albers will make his 24th career start.
The White Sox play tonight at 6:10.
