Sale staying in bullpen

GLENDALE, Ariz. _ Just finished sessions with KW and Ozzie, and there is some news, albeit not unexpected. Kenny said Chris Sale is not going to be a starter this season, which means odds are good the hard-throwing lefty is going to either close games or pitch in a setup role. It’s just the first day of camp, and Kenny said he expects a “blip” with Jake Peavy’s comeback this spring. But it’s sounding more and more like Peavy could be ready to go on April 10, when the White Sox first need a fifth starter. We’ll keep an eye on that. As for a replacement starter if Peavy’s blip is worse than expected, Ozzie said a few pitchers were discussed in a meeting Thursday morning but he “can’t remember their names.” The short list is likely Phil Humber, Charlie Leesman and Lucas Harrell.
