White Sox Vs. Astros Preview: Chicago Sends Chris Sale To The Mound

The Chicago White Sox (13-18) take on the Houston Astros (14-16) on Tuesday, beginning a two-game, exhibition series in Minute Maid Park.

The White Sox, returning to Houston for the first time since they won the 2005 World Series, send young RHP Chris Sale to the mound. Sale, who turned 23 less than a week ago, has led the White Sox in innings pitched this Spring Training. He sports a mediocre 4.50 ERA through 24.0, but has stymied hitters to the tune 22 K and 2 BB.
