Report: Chris Sale cut up White Sox throwback jerseys

Chris Sale was scratched from his start against the Tigers for reportedly cutting up the White Sox throwback jerseys in an attempt to convey his disdain for wearing them.

Details are emerging about the incident that caused Chris Sale to be scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday.

Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports initially reported that the Chicago White Sox ace refused to wear a throwback jersey and cut it up instead.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and Julie DiCaro of Sports Illustrated added to the report.

The bizarre turn of events puts a temporary halt to the trade speculation that arose when Sale was scratched.
