It's official: Chris Sale to the rotation
MILWAUKEE -- White Sox general manager Kenny Williams emphatically confirmed Tuesday what has been expected: Left-hander Chris Sale will be in the starting rotation in 2012.
That means there will be an opening in the starting five. The vacancy is expected to come from the free-agent departure of Mark Buehrle.
If Buehrle leaves and the White Sox do not trade a starter, their rotation would consist of Danks, Floyd, Sale, Phil Humber and Jake Peavy.
