Back in June the White Sox selected Florida Gulf Coast University left-hander Chris Sale with the 13th pick in the draft and now less than two months later Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that they’re planning to call him up as soon as tomorrow.
Sale was a starter in college, but the White Sox moved him to the bullpen after the 6-foot-5 southpaw agreed to a $1.65 million signing bonus and he’s logged 10.1 innings with a 2.61 ERA and 19/6 K/BB ratio between high Single-A and Triple-A.
Not only would he be the first player from the 2010 draft class to reach the majors, he’d be doing so before many first-round picks have even signed.
