Chris Sale claims that he and his Chicago White Sox teammates were lied to by executive vice president Kenny Williams.
Sale spoke to the media with two Adam LaRoche jerseys hanging in his locker, including one signed by the player's 14-year-old son, Drake.
Williams has told three different stories on why the decision was made to limit Drake's access to the clubhouse, according to Sale. The decision prompted LaRoche to leave the team and a contract that would have paid him $13 million this season.
"Somebody walked out of those doors the other day and it was the wrong guy," Sale said.
Sale contends that Williams has contradicted himself, first saying that players complained about LaRoche's son being in the clubhouse, then saying it was coaches who spoke against it and then saying the decision came down from ownership.
"We got bald-faced lied to by someone that we trust," Sale said.
"This isn't us rebelling against rules; this is us rebelling against B.S.," he added.
