Yesterday was good and bad for the Chicago White Sox, with the good being the 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers. The bad was having Chris Sale being placed on the disabled list.
The “best” part about Sale being placed on the DL is that his injury isn’t really serious, and some rest on his left arm should fix his problem.
As for the rest of the team, who have won their past two games, they have a big obstacle ahead of them this evening in Justin Verlander in game two of this series. More on that today.
Speaking of the Tigers’ series, John Danks deserves some props for his performance, as the Chicago Sun-Times wrote about the win on Monday:
"“John Danks pitched out of trouble and worked into the seventh inning, holding the Tigers to one run.”"
Danks looks to be the leader of this staff right now as Sale heals up for the next couple weeks.
