White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from his start Saturday after what the club defined as a “clubhouse incident.” The issue, according to multiple reports, involved Sale’s refusal to the throwback uniforms scheduled to be donned by Chicago in it’s game against Detroit.
Source: “Sale asked that they not wear (throwbacks) on his day because they are uncomfortable. Things escalated when they wouldn’t relent.”

Not a joke: Source says Sale blowup was because he didn’t want to wear throwbacks, so he cut the jerseys up so no one could wear them.
