Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com has the news:
Chris Sale has been scratched from Wednesday’s start with mild tendinitis in his left posterior shoulder, the team announced Tuesday.
A team official said Sale is expected to make his next start on Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs.
Hector Santiago will take the mound in his place. Sale has posted a fantastic 2.53 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in nine outings this season, fanning 61 batters and allowing only 15 walks in 64 innings. Any kind of shoulder trouble is concerning, but the White Sox don’t seem to think this will wind up being a big deal.
The White Sox have a scheduled team off day this Thursday, so they don’t have to add a new starter as long as Sale misses just one turn. The 24-year-old left-hander carries AL Cy Young Award potential.
