Between Sale, Quintana, Rienzo, Santiago, and Johnson, though, I think the Sox probably only have to find one more arm. So that's good.
It should be noted that the 6 IP is caused by his pitcher count. He is averaging 102 pitches over 6 IP which is very high. He has a solid ERA and his BB/SO is also really good. Maybe too much nibbling despite not a high walk total is causing the high pitch counts???
