Sale could miss Tuesday start due to soreness

Sale could miss Tuesday start due to soreness

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale is unlikely to make his scheduled start against Detroit on Tuesday night because of what manager Robin Ventura describes as general muscular soreness.

The Chicago ace was supposed to face Tigers star Justin Verlander. He was still listed as the starter as of Monday afternoon, but Ventura says Sale's status is very much uncertain.

Sale threw 127 pitches in a loss to Boston on Thursday. He's 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA on the season. Ventura says Sale's soreness isn't too alarming at this point, but he could need some extra rest before taking the mound again.

Right-hander Andre Rienzo is a candidate to start for Chicago on Tuesday if Sale doesn't pitch.
