Chris Sale two weeks away from rehab assignment

The Chicago White Sox will be without left handed ace Chris Sale for the foreseeable future.

Sale will begin a minor league rehab assignment in two weeks which pushes him at-least three weeks back from contributing at the big league level.

The 25-year-old Sale was shut down after experiencing a flexor muscle strain following an April 18 start. Sale was able to throw a light bullpen session on Monday.

Prior to being shut down Sale was 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.84 WHUP across four starts.
