Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale will not pitch against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night. And no, he wasn’t traded.
The White Sox announced that Sale was sent home by the team due to a pregame incident in the locker room. They did say that the altercation was NOT physical but did not give much detail.
Official: Chris Sale has been scratched from tonight’s scheduled start.

It’s a weird situation all around as Sale has been the hot topic of trade discussion in the past few days. 670 The Score’s Laurence Holmes has an interesting thought about it all:
I wonder if they talked to Sale about possibly moving him and it set him off. ? #WhiteSox
