DETROIT — White Sox ace Chris Sale will miss his scheduled start Tuesday against the Tigers in Detroit because of unspecified arm soreness, manager Robin Ventura said Monday.
Sale threw a 127 pitches, a career-high and his last outing against the Boston Red Sox at US cellular Field on Thursday.
“He’s kind of sore,” Ventura said.
“Just general soreness that he always has. Just a way to make sure he’s fine.”
Sale was receiving treatment from trainer Herm Schneider and was unavailable before the game Monday against the Tigers.
Sale missed a start last May because of soreness in his left elbow.
Andre Rienzo will likely start Tuesday.
