(CBS) White Sox ace Chris Sale is progressing well in his recovery from a strained flexor muscle in his throwing arm, pitching coach Don Cooper told the Mully and Hanley Show on Wednesday morning, though no there’s no certain timetable for his return.
“Chris played catch yesterday, felt a bit better,” Cooper said. “First of all, this is something that’s happened the last two years, and we’ve taken the time and given him the time to get well, get right and continue his path to possible greatness — because he’s pretty dang good. The greatness is a continuation of what he’s been doing. We’re not going to continue that process, though, until he’s ready to go.
“Feeling better. He’s going to long toss today, and really we’re going to take it day by day, seeing how he’s going.
“We’re certainly listening hard to him.”
