Chris Sale leads charge as White Sox pitchers make progress

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The news continues to get better for a pitching staff on the mend as the Chicago White Sox showed progress in several areas Saturday. Not only did Erik Johnson (abdomen/oblique) throw a 20-pitch bullpen session, Chris Sale participated in group pitchers’ fielding practice for the first time since fracturing a bone in his right foot at the end of February. His activity was light, but it still represented another milestone in his recovery.

The new Chicago White Sox starter went up against his old teammates Friday and gave up four home runs to the Chicago Cubs in his second-to-last outing before games get underway for real. All was not bad, though, as he reached 92 pitches and struck out nine without a walk over six innings. The Cubs won the game 6-3.

Carlos Rodon likely to open season in minors

MESA, Ariz. -- The strongest sign that Chicago White Sox top prospect Carlos Rodon will open the season in the minor leagues came Friday from manager Robin Ventura. “Everybody has different opinions on him, but you don’t want to put him in there with one pitch or two pitches,” Ventura said Friday. “You want him to be armed with the things that make him successful and you don’t want him to come up here and be a flash in the pan and he’s got to go down and work on stuff.

If not now, then when for Carlos Rodon?

GLENDALE, Ariz. – A day after striking out nine batters in a Cactus League game, a refreshed Carlos Rodon said he slept well.
