ANAHEIM, Calif. — Chris Sale will take the ball for the White Sox when they open their final homestand of the season on Monday night. Sale might have to stop a five-game losing streak if the Sox lose to the Angels on Sunday.
“I don’t think anyone is quite panicking,” Sale said Sunday. “You start panicking and you get out of your comfort zone. That’s what we don’t want to do. Just be prepared.”
Sale said he “feels good” going into his 28th start on Monday.
“Obviously it might take a little bit longer to bounce back but that’s part of it,” he said Sunday. “Just make sure I’m doing my running and conditioning and stay on top of that. Once my fifth day comes up usually I’m in a pretty good spot.”
Jake Peavy, who made his 30th start Friday and passed 200 innings for the first time since 2007, is scheduled Wednesday on four days rest but it’s possible he will get an extra day and open the Tampa Bay series on Thursday.
