The chances that Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale would be able to return this weekend are “slim at best” according to manager Robin Ventura.
Sale was able to play catch on Tuesday and will do some long-toss on Wednesday.

The White Sox are being cautions for their star pitcher and simply want to make sure he is at full health when he returns to the rotation. The longer Sale is out the more likely it is that he will need a rehab assignment.
Hector Noesi will start for the White Sox on Wednesday.
