White Sox still waiting on Sale

There is good news and bad news on the Chris Sale front. The good news is that once the lefty is healed and ready to go he likely won’t need a rehab start. The bad news is the club has no idea when to expect him back from a left flexor muscle strain that put him out of action back on April 22nd.

Sox skipper Robin Ventura reported yesterday that his ace has played catch on back-to-back days. Not a bad start. But there is no timetable as of yet for Sale to begin throwing off a mound. Speaking to, pitching coach Don Cooper gave his thoughts on the situation:

"We're not worried about if he throws when the time's up on the disabled list. First of all, we've got to play some more catch, and then we've got to get to a light sideline and get all that on track.

"Listen, the last few years he's had something and we shut him down. Why? Because we wanted to take care of him, and that's what we're doing right now. And when he's able to go, he'll be out there and really not one second before.”

Sale has been solid when healthy this year carrying a 2.30 ERA and outstanding .84 WHIP. He’s appeared in four games with 29 K’s over 27 1/3 innings.
