No decision yet on Opening Day starter

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Chris Sale might be lined up to make his first Opening Day start on April 1 against the Royals, but manager Robin Ventura is not ready to make that call.

"We'll wait," Ventura said. "We'll see how everything goes, and we'll make a decision later in spring."

As far back as SoxFest, Jake Peavy told of his strong support for Sale as the team's Opening Day starter. Ventura said with a wry smile that he'll be making that decision.

"I'll take care of it later," Ventura said.
