Analysis: General manager Rick Hahn says the White Sox are erring on the side of caution, and that an MRI suggests no ligament damage. Sale was supposed to face Tigers star Justin Verlander on Tuesday night, but now Chicago will be without its ace. Charlie Leesman is expected to start that game instead. The 25-year-old Sale threw 127 pitches in a loss to Boston on Thursday. He's 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA on the season.

Analysis: Xander Bogaerts homered with two out in the sixth for Boston's only hit off Sale, who was seeking his fourth win in as many starts. He fanned a season-high 10 in his seven innings Thursday.

Analysis: Sale has enjoyed an average of 6.64 runs of support thus far - likely a nice change for the left-hander after he averaged 3.19 runs of support in 2013 while going 11-14.

Analysis: Sale struck out six and walked one. In his previous four starts against the Royals, the White Sox had backed him with one run, enough to beat James Shields 1-0 in the 2012 opener. He is a fantasy stud for sure.
