The 21-year-old southpaw gave up one run over four innings for the Dash, while striking out four and walking two. But outstanding location on all of his pitches served as the best news White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper heard when talking to Winston-Salem pitching coach Bobby Thigpen.
“I talked to Thiggy about him the other day, and I received a very, very good report,” Cooper said. “The thing I remember [Thigpen] saying, for however long [Sale] was there, was he didn’t throw a pitch above the knees.
“He’s obviously an advanced kid. We would not be doing what we were doing if he was not giving us reason to do it.”
