Description: White Sox starter Chris Sale, having pitched Wednesday, will now drop his appeal to a five-game suspension.
Insight: It's how the "game" is played. Sale has struggled the last two times out yielding 13 earned runs in 8 1/2 IP. He owns a bloated 5.93 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. Now might be the perfect time to make his fantasy owner a low-ball offer.

Description: White Sox starter Chris Sale could not make it out of this six inning on Wednesday.
Insight: While Sale does have two victories this season, the ERA over 5.00 will not please owners.

Description: White Sox starter Chris Sale gets a five-game suspension for his "work" in the latest altercation with the Royals.

Description: White Sox starter Chris Sale has thrown a bullpen session and a simulated game over the past week without incident, says baseball analyst Bruce Levine.
Insight: Sale is on pace for an April 12 start if all continues to go well. Given that timetable, fantasy owners should not discount Sales' value at all. Sale is coming off a 12-4 season with a stunning 2.17 ERA and 0.966 WHIP.

Description: White Sox starter Chris Sale will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.
Insight: There is still not a set timetable for his debut, so owners are currently in a grey area with Sale for now. We would suspect he will be pitching with the White Sox by mid-April, meaning he could be a steal in drafts this season.
