Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale will miss his scheduled Wednesday start because of tendinitis in his left shoulder.
According to manager Robin Ventura, the injury isn't believed to be serious and there was no MRI will be needed. The hope is to have him back for his next start on Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs.
Pitching coach Don Cooper said scratching Sale was merely a precautionary measure and the tendinitis of his "posterior left shoulder" was considered minor.
Sale leads the White Sox with a 2.53 ERA and 61 strikeouts in 64 innings. He's 5-2 in nine starts this season.
