At some point this week, the white sox will celebrate the return of chris sale to a pitching rotation that desperately needs him. although some of the work turned out by the starting staff has been strong, the results have been mostly inconsistent -- especially since sale left for the disabled list last month. as has been broadly discussed this season, the sox aren't the only team with the same problem. all you have to do is take a look around major league baseball and you'll find some of the best pitchers and players on the dl and missing significant time -- many in their low-to-mid 20s.
