White Sox Vs. Tigers: Gavin Floyd, Chris Sale To Pitch In Series

After a two-week absence, Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd will return to the rotation on Wednesday to face the Detroit Tigers, as Scott Miller of CBS Sports reports. The right-hander has been dealing with a flexor strain in his right elbow, but he's been completing bullpen sessions recently.

In addition, left-hander Chris Sale will start for the White Sox on Thursday against the Tigers, right on schedule following his strong start against the Kansas City Royals on Sept. 8. Manager Robin Ventura has said that the team won't limit Sale's workload for the remainder of the season.

On Monday, the White Sox are opening a key four-game series against the Tigers. Entering the series, Chicago holds a two-game lead in the AL Central standings over Detroit, so there are major postseason implications for this week's games.
