Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers on earth. He’s 14-3 this season with an ERA of 3.18 and a WHIP of 1.008, so if you’re going up against the Chicago White Sox and Sale is on the mound, odds are you’re in for a really tough afternoon.
So when the Detroit Tigers saw that Sale was slated to start Sunday’s game between the two AL Central rivals, they probably weren’t looking forward to having to deal with one of the best pitchers in the American League. That is until they found out that Sale’s start on Saturday got scratched, which is weird, because he was healthy and ready to go once he got to the ballpark.
As it turns out, Sale was involved in a locker room incident, which led to him getting sent home, according to a statement released by the team.
