2012 MLB All Star Game: Chicago's Chris Sale Makes Team In First Year As Starter

While the full rosters for this year's MLB All Star Game are being announced this afternoon, teammates were seen congratulating Chicago White Sox starter Chris Sale for making the team before Sunday afternoon's game, as Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Chicago's first round pick in 2010, Sale spent last season in the bullpen before converting to the rotation this spring. It's led to a breakout for the 23-year-old, who has posted a 2.27 ERA with 94 strikeouts and 24 walks over 95.1 innings with the White Sox this season.
