2010 MLB Draft, Day One, Pick 13: Chris Sale (LHP, White Sox)

With the 13th overall pick, the White Sox have selected:

Chris Sale, LHP, Florida Gulf Coast University

Chris Sale struck out 146 batters in 103 innings, with 14 walks. He didn't face much competition, but those numbers are insane. Sale's a controversial guy, as he doesn't have a great breaking ball and he has a very low arm slot for a lefty, but with his 6'6 body, 90+ fastball, and effective change, he's going to get every opportunity to prove himself in the starting rotation. Skeptics think he'll end up in the bullpen, where he could be dominant against lefties, but only time will tell. The White Sox are happy to have a project this talented on their hands.
