White Sox ace Chris Sale has been cleared to come off the disabled list after missing the past month with a sore left flexor muscle. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Sale will start tomorrow night against the Yankees.
Sale struck out 11 batters in a minor-league rehab start Friday at Triple-A, although he threw only 68 pitches. There had been some talk of Sale making a second rehab start, in part to build up more arm strength, but he felt good enough to skip it.
Sale was 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA in four starts before being shut down and the 25-year-old left-hander has been one of the best starters in baseball since joining the rotation in 2012, starting 63 games with a 3.02 ERA and 9.3 strikeouts per nine innings.
