White Sox Shift Sale From Starter To Closer

May 05, 2012 7:16 AM EST

The White Sox are shifting Chris Sale from the starting rotation to the bullpen.

In fact, Sale will close games for Chicago going forward.

The left-hander reportedly has elbow tenderness and was not happy with the switch.

"Chris is going to be fine," pitching coach Don Cooper said. "He was upset. He wanted to continue to (start).

"But again, sometimes we have to make decisions based on what we feel is best for that individual, and that's what we did."
