White Sox announce discipline for Chris Sale

The Chicago White Sox have suspended pitcher Chris Sale for five days after concluding the club's investigation into a clubhouse incident prior to Saturday's game with the Detroit Tigers.

The suspension began Saturday and runs through Wednesday.

"Chris has been suspended for violating team rules, for insubordination and for destroying team equipment," said Rick Hahn, White Sox senior vice president/general manager. "While we all appreciate Chris' talent and passion, there is a correct way and an incorrect way to express concerns about team rules and organizational expectations."

Sale, who also was fined an undisclosed amount, has been placed on Major League Baseball's suspended list.
