Ace Sale lined up to make final starts on the road

KANSAS CITY -- As things stand now, White Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale doesn't figure to pitch again this season before the home fans at U.S. Cellular Field.

Manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that current rotation plans call for Sale to make his final 2014 start in Detroit next week before the White Sox finish at home with a four-game series against the Royals.

"At this point, that's what it looks like," Ventura said. "That he would pitch [Wednesday in Kansas City] and one more in Detroit. And maybe being lined up for the last day, but I don't see him getting rushed in to do that one. It's a long ways away. It can always change."
