|White Sox Ink First Round Draft Pick
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox and first-round draft pick Chris Sale have agreed to a contract that includes a $1,686,000 signing bonus.
A left-hander from Florida Gulf Coast University, Sale went 11-0 with a 2.01 ERA as a junior this past season. He was the 13th overall choice in the draft.
The White Sox said the 21-year-old Sale will begin his professional career with Class-A Winston-Salem. He is listed at 6-foot-6, 185 pounds, and the club hopes he can add some weight in the coming months.
