UPDATE: The White Sox just announced that Chris Sale suffered an avulsion fracture of his right foot and will be sidelined three weeks. According to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that he suffered the injury unloading something off the back of his truck yesterday.

It sounds like it could have been a lot worse, but Sale’s status for Opening Day is in question at the moment. We should know more after the swelling in his foot subsides.

The White Sox loaded up over the winter with additions of Jeff Samardzija, Melky Cabrera, Adam LaRoche, and David Robertson, among others, so potentially losing Sale for a significant period of time would be a tough blow. We’ll pass along more information as soon as it’s made available. In the meantime, cross your fingers, White Sox fans.
