What can Sale do for you?

Let me keep this simple if your playing cash games today you need to have Chris Sale in your lineup. He is arguably the best pitcher in the MLB right now (outside of C. Kershaw.. I got ya Kersh #Dodgersfan) in all seriousness Sale has been on fire! The last eight games he has pitched he had at least 10 strikeouts, and had pitched at least 7 innings in all but one start this year and he has a winning record of (4-2). Is it too early to call him the AL CY Young award (this award is given annually to the best pitchers in Major League Baseball, one each for the American League and National League). Sale not surprising checks every box that we want from our SP1 (starting pitcher 1) if your playing on a site like Draftkings.
