Chris Sale just completed his 1st start and went nearly 7 innings and threw 100 pitches. His final line of 1W, 5K, 1.35 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP is enough to bolster anyone’s Fantasy Team. Currently only owned in 60% of leagues he is one to consider. You must also recognize his RP status which is an added value to any squad.
If you remember Sale was the 13th overall pick in the 2010 draft, he had a great year in 2010 with 71 IP in relief. As a reliever last year he had no real use for his change-up but is was superb during his inaugural start. Yes, Cleveland is only hitting .153 as a team and they had something to do with Sale’s success but not all. Sale was dominant according to catcher Pierzynski.
Sale should be a fixture in the White Sox rotation for the next decade just as the man he is replacing, Mark Buehrle had been. If you have room on your roster or need to replace some of your injured players you should scoop up Sale immediately.
