Orioles sign Heath Bell, Chris Sale makes rehab start


The Chicago White Sox soon will be able to add left hander Chris Sale back to their rotation.

Sale has been out of action since suffering a flexor muscle strain in his left elbow.

In four innings on Friday, Sale struck out 11 batters while pitching for Triple-A Charlotte. He  is expected to make one more minor league start before returning to the White Sox.

Prior to suffering his strain, Sale was 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP.

Bell signs with O’s

It only took Heath Bell a few days to find a new team after being released by the Tampa Bay Rays. Bell signed a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

Bell had a 7.27 ERA in 13 games for the Rays but will now take his act to the Orioles. Currently viewed as depth, it should only be  a matter of time before he ends up in their bullpen.
