Jackson Shines in Sox Debut; Sale a Big Leaguer

When the White Sox announced they had traded promising righty Daniel Hudson and another top prospect for Edwin Jackson, skeptics pointed to Jackson’s subpar performance in Arizona this season.
Then word leaked out that Sox pitching guru Don Cooper had spotted something in Jackson’s delivery and was convinced he could help Edwin make the necessary adjustment.
If Jackson’s Sox debut is any indication, Coop deserves a standing ovation from Sox fans. Though he was touched for nine hits, the newest Sox starter gave up only one run while striking out six and walking just one in seven-plus innings tonight as the Pale Hose defeated the Tigers, 4-1.
Sale of the Year

While Jackson’s performance provided the best news, the most intriguing news out of SoxWorld today was the promotion of the club’s 2010 top draft pick Chris Sale to Chicago. Just a matter of months away from leading the staff at Florida Gulf Coast University, Sale is now the second lefty in our pen. Can’t wait to see him in action. He was lights out at both Winston-Salem and Charlotte in his brief minor league stint.

Just a couple of months ago, Chris Sale was introduced as the club’s first round draft choice and threw out the ceremonial first pitch (above). Now he’s a full-fledged member of the White Sox bullpen.
