Sale faced dozens of reporters after the game, heaping praise on his teammates, sidestepping questions about the jersey tearing and expressing gratitude to be back.

“It makes me feel proud when I go out there and the fans are cheering,” Chapman said through catcher cheap Miguel Montero jersey, who served as his translator.

The lefty was scratched from his start Saturday, sent home and then suspended for cutting up a number of collared throwback jerseys the team was supposed to wear for the game. Sale said they were uncomfortable and became enraged when the team wouldn’t switch them out, feeling the team was putting marketing over winning.
“We’re here to win games and from this point forward I think that’s our main focus,” Sale said.” I hope it is, too.”
