Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale struck out 15 Tampa Bay Rays Monday, allowing one run in 7 1/3 innings. Sale's strikeout potential is intriguing, and while the team's concerns about his pitching elbow could pose issues later in the year, this isn't a typical sell-high option. It remains, however, hard to imagine Sale approaching 175 innings after throwing 71 last season.
