GLENDALE, Ariz. -- White Sox manager Robin Ventura said that Chris Sale will start for the White Sox on Opening Day. Ventura made the announcement following the Sox' 11-5 Cactus League victory against the Oakland A's on Saturday.

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

"Just erratic control, kind of all over the zone,'' Sale said.

The Sox open at home against the Kansas City Royals on April 1. 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.
