CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago White Sox have scratched Chris Sale from Wednesday’s start against the Boston Red Sox because of a mild tendinitis in his left shoulder.

Sale was scheduled to pitch against the unbeaten Clay Buchholz. Hector Santiago will start in his place.

The White Sox say they expect Sale to make his next scheduled start against the Cubs on Tuesday. The left-hander is 5-2 with a 2.53 ERA and has thrown 23 consecutive scoreless innings.
