Don Cooper was a little testy answering questions about Chris Sale during an appearance on WSCR 670-AM, insisting that the prize lefty is healthy. As of this morning, the results of the MRI on Sale's left elbow haven't been revealed, although expect some answers this afternoon.
Chicago Tribune Live weighed in on Sale, trying to make sense of his future:
Jared Mitchell and Josh Phegley slowed after hot starts to the season in the minors, David Kaplan explains in his weekly minor league roundup.
Kap also previewed the upcoming home dates with Kansas City and Detroit, as well as looking at the Sale situation:
Jim looks ahead to the next week and sees favorable matchups, if only the Sox could hit lefties, while James has an excellent breakdown of Gordon Beckham.
Around the division: Cleveland torched Josh Beckett in an 8-3 win over Boston, Josh Willingham hit his seventh homer in a 6-2 Twins loss to Toronto, Brandon Inge homered against his former club but Detroit still beat Oakland 10-6 and good friend Vinnie Duber writes about Mike Moustakas.
