White Sox left-hander Chris Sale looked good enough in his first minor-league rehab start that it’s possible there won’t be a second rehab start, striking out 11 batters in four shutout innings at Triple-A last night.
In terms of dominance that signals he’s probably ready to rejoin the White Sox after missing time with a strained flexor muscle, but because Sale threw only 68 pitches he may need one more start to build back arm strength before coming off the disabled list.
Here’s some video of the rehab start from our friends at CSNChicago.com:
