BOSTON — Asked Thursday what factored into the previous night’s decision when he removed Chris Sale, White Sox manager Robin Ventura cited last month’s loss at Anaheim.
BOSTON — Chris Sale was on Target on Wednesday night.
His bullpen was not.
TORONTO -- When Jose Bautista batted with the game on the line and the Rogers Centre crowd roaring Sunday, Tyler Flowers didn’t go to the mound to calm Jose Quintana down.
TORONTO — Just because he handled it well before doesn’t mean Zach Putnam would pitch the ninth inning on Sunday if the White Sox have a lead.
TORONTO -- Perhaps they have a closer in mind, but in an attempt to avoid a new tryout every week, the White Sox will handle the role by committee for now.
