Chicago White Sox: Will Chris Sale Continue His Dominant Run in the Second Half?
If Chicago White Six pitcher Chris Sale can replicate the first half of the 2012 season, he could win himself a Cy Young award. The young left-hander is among the elite pitchers in the American League, but can Sale keep it up in the midst of a division race?
Sale enters the second half with a 10-2 record and a 2.19 ERA. He starts Sunday afternoon in Kansas City having won his last seven decisions.
Since re-entering the White Sox's rotation May 12 after a brief stint in the bullpen, Sale has posted a 1.94 ERA. He pitched a scoreless inning in Kaufman Stadium on Tuesday in the All-Star Game. It's time to see if Sale will pick up where he left off July 3 when he beat the Texas Rangers.
Sale is relying less on his breaking pitches and is changing speeds more effectively. That's a good thing... [via Bleacher Report]
