GLENDALE, Ariz. — White Sox manager Robin Ventura said left-hander Chris Sale will start on Opening Day. Ventura made the announcement after the Sox’ 11-5 Cactus League victory against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.

Sale had his worst outing of the spring, allowing five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings.

The Sox open April 1 against the Kansas City Royals. It will be Sale’s first Opening Day start, and the assignment comes as no surprise. Sale signed a $32.5 million contract extension last week.
