Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears signed LB Jarrett Grace and waived LB Danny Mason. Grace is an undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame, who attended the Bears rookie minicamp as a rookie tryout.

Two-out walk to Jose Ramirez bites Chris Sale as the Indians go up 2-1 after Mike Napoli's triple; Ramirez worked Sale for 10 pitches, getting three balls on sliders. Great AB with big repercussions.

Fun thing about Adam Eaton's fifth career lead off home run, I was talking to White Sox hitting coach Todd Steverson about Eaton's power spike last season, and about how that's going to remain part of Eaton's game. Stay tuned.

Declining velocity? In the first inning, Chris Sale threw 11 fastballs, eight of them for 95 MPH or more.

Todd Frazier on Chris Sale: "Those lanky guys will get you. His arm just spins every which way and – boom! -- it's 96 or 89. He's mixing his speeds really well this year. That's the sign of a great pitcher."

Robin Ventura on getting to watch Chris Sale pitch : "There is a guilty pleasure to it."
