My question is rushing a first round draft choice for middle relief work.
There seems to be little long term thinking at all in this organization.
"Rushing" is all dependent on the player. If Sale is able to handle multiple levels of the minors, there's no reason not to promote him except to keep him another year further from free agency. Also, part of the negotiations that got him signed so quickly is the White Sox willingness to give him a shot to move up to the majors quickly. They would look completely disingenuous if they didn't give him the opportunity, which would hurt them long term with every draft pick.

Bottom line, the White Sox did the proper short and long term planning.
