After hovering around 90 mph July 27 in Texas, concerns about Sale’s drop in velocity evaporated as the 23-year-old was consistently hurtling his fastball in the 93-95 mph range Monday.
And of course he was effective, allowing two runs on eight hits in eight innings and not walking anyone.
That’s good news for a guy who you sorta have to worry about at this point of the season. After all, he only threw 71 innings as a reliever last season, and already he’s up to 132. The White Sox need him to be effective down the stretch. Here’s hoping the one extended break is enough.
