Chris Sale cut up White Sox throwbacks and was sent home

Earlier we wrote on the Chicago White Sox sending ace pitcher Chris Sale home after a non-physical incident. Sale was scratched from Saturday’s start against the Detroit Tigers and now we know why.

According to Tommy Stokke, Sale was unhappy with the 1976 throwback uniforms the White Sox were scheduled to wear on Saturday. He was so upset, possibly with the collar, that he started to cut them off of every jersey. He was then sent home.

Here are the jerseys the White Sox were supposed to wear:

Jeff Passan later confirmed the report:

Instead, the White Sox are now wearing their 1983 throwbacks that they usually wear on Sundays. The White Sox wore the 1973 throwbacks with a collar last season, as Carlos Rodon got the start.

It is unclear is Sale will start on Sunday or during the Crosstown Classic against the Chicago Cubs.
