Analysis: Wacha was scratched prior to Sunday's game against the White Sox with manager Alex Cora saying he was feeling sore on left his side after his last bullpen session. The 30-year-old Wacha (3-0, 1.38 ERA) signed a one-year, $7 million deal during spring training. He has been one of the team's best starters, allowing two or fewer runs and going five-plus innings in each of his last four starts. Right-hander Tanner Houck (2-2, 5.14) will take his place against Chicago.
