White Sox SP Chris Sale has been placed on the DL with a flexor muscle strain in his left forearm. Before you start yelling, "OMG I KNEW IT HIS MECHANICS ARE AWFUL HE'S ALWAYS BEEN AN INJURY WAITING TO HAPPEN!!!," the team says that Sale's elbow ligaments are fine, and seems to think he could be back after his 15 days are up - meaning only a couple of missed starts. Let's hope they're right.
Streaming starters: Wily Peraltahad a pretty good outing on Monday, raising our record to 12-9. Today's pick is Edinson Volquez (owned in 10.5 percent of FOXSports.com leagues) versus the Reds, while Wednesday's selection is Miami fireballer Nathan Eovaldi (20.5 percent owned) at Atlanta. Did you know that Eovaldi has 23 strikeouts against just three walks in 25 1/3 innings? Sure, his opponents (Rockies, Padres, Phillies, Mariners) haven't been so good, but those are impressive numbers, anyway.
