White Sox pitcher Chris Sale confirmed Tuesday his representatives have had discussions with the club about a contract extension.

Sale, who is about to enter his second season as a starting pitcher, was an All-Star in 2012 when he went 17-8 with a 3.05 ERA in 30 games (29 starts).

He struck out 192 batters in a professional-high 192 innings.

If Sale, who enters the 2013 season with 2 years, 61 days service time, stays in the majors all season he’ll qualify for arbitration next season. The left-hander, who was the 13th overall pick of the 2010 draft, is set to earn $600,000 this season and would be in line for a significant raise.

“We’ve been kind of back and forth but nothing too crazy right now,” Sale said Tuesday when asked about extension talks.
