Sale throws bullpen session could start soon
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chris Sale threw a bullpen session Tuesday and the Chicago White Sox left-hander could come off the disabled list by the weekend and start against the New York Yankees.
Sale, an American League All-Star selection the past two years, went on the disabled list on April 22 with a left flexor strain. He was 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA in four starts before the injury.
The White Sox have not listed any probable starter for the four-game series with the Yankees, which begins Thursday. Manager Robin Ventura did not rule out Sale starting one of the four.
Sale struck out 11 and allowed one hit in four scoreless innings Friday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte.
