Chris Sale, an American baseball pitcher currently playing for the Chicago White Sox in the Major League Baseball (MLB) is on highlight these days as he became only the second player to record eight straight double-digit strikeouts, alongside Pablo Martinez who managed this feat back in 1999.
Apparently, the 6 feet 6 inches tall Sale has been termed “unhittable” at the moment. Rightly so! Many baseball pundits have been talking about this guy and how he deserves to be in a better team. Some have wrote of how composed and important he remains for his team. One article even wrote of how Sale’s body defied physics while he pitched the ball. All we can say – he surely has carved a lot of attention.
While, the professional career of this 26 year old is hitting off to a high, he surely doesn’t take to social media to celebrate his success. We could not follow his Twitter account- because he doesn’t have one! And not surprisingly, he did not have an Instagram account either.
Nonetheless, his personal life also seems to be going fine. Sale-who is nicknamed The Condor– is married to Brianne Aaron Sale, whom he met while he was studying at Gulf Coast University. The two married back in 2012 and the lovely couple welcomed Rylan, their first child, while they were students at the University. His wife, who has some decent modelling records, aspires to be a massage therapist!
Sale started the year, 2015 on the disabled list due to a foot injury. He returned on April 12 pitching 6 innings with 8 strikeouts in a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins. During a game against the Kansas City Royals on April 23, Sale was warned by home plate umpire Sam Holbrook after hitting Mike Moustakas with a pitch. Later on, Sale was involved in a bench-clearing brawl after his teammate Adam Eaton grounded out to Yordano Ventura. Sale was one of five players to be ejected for his role in the brawl as the White Sox lost to the Royals 2-3 in 13 innings. On April 25, Sale was suspended for 5 games.
Born in Lakeland, Florida- he kick started his professional career after being drafted by White Sox in the 2010 MLB draft. By playing at that year, he became only one of the five players in MLB history to play in the same season that he was drafted. After making a debut against Baltimore on August 6 2010, this left hand thrower has become one of the most important players for his team. Hence, he remains one of the better paid players of the team. He signed a 5 year contract worth $ 31,500,000 back in 2013, averaging a salary of around $3,500,000 per year while he has net worth of $ 4,350,000 . Indeed, one of the highest paid palyers, he has now market value of $41.5 Million Now at the height of his career, he still does have a lot left to deliver.
The weight of the recent record may prove startling for Chris. He remains a rather young pitcher but he is certainly not one to be messed with. A constant member of the All-Star roster, the future definitely seems bright for this fast pitcher.
