CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from his start against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night and sent home after he destroyed collared throwback uniforms that the team was scheduled to wear. Matt Albers, who started in Sale's place, confirmed the incident, but the White Sox provided no details after their game against Detroit was suspended by rain after eight innings tied at 3 — the game will resume Sunday before the series finale. With the White Sox fading from playoff contention, Sale's name has been mentioned as a possible trade target for contending teams. The left-hander, known for his competitive streak and rigorous training program, has been outspoken in the past. Sale is 71-43 in his career and entered the day leading the majors with 133 innings pitched and three complete games. In his last outing Monday, Sale allowed one hit over eight shutout innings before closer David Robertson gave up four runs in the ninth in Chicago's loss to Seattle. Tigers: LHP Daniel Norris (oblique) allowed five earned runs and five hits over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a rehab start for Triple-A Toledo. 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) missed his second straight game, but isn't expected to go on the disabled list. Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez (5-11, 6.60 ERA) starts the series finale Sunday against White Sox LHP Jose Quintana (8-8, 3.13).
