The Chicago White Sox LHP Chris Sale has been struggling with elbow soreness in recent days, and the White Sox have elected to reconsider Sale as a reliever. On Thursday, the 23-year-old goes in for an MRI on his elbow, but the team's pitching coach, Don Cooper, appears confident the young pitcher will be healthy, fine and pitching:
"Chris Sale is healthy. Chris Sale is fine. Chris Sale is going to be pitching."
"As of this minute, as of this second, as I’m sitting here talking, he’s in the ‘pen. He pitched in the ‘pen last night. That’s it. That’s where he is right now."
