Chris Sale’s rehab starts could not be going any better, to say the least.
Sale tossed 3 2/3 innings of scoreless ball while striking out six batters. The lefty did not give up a hit, and hit 98 mph on the radar gun in the first inning alone — prompting him to ask the umpire if he wanted to check him for illegal substances (he didn’t.)
Overall, threw 49 pitches with 34 strikes.
Check out some of the highlights:
Of course, we know by now that the day following a rehab start is incredibly important. Sale felt really good after his outing with the Florida Complex League, and that hopefully will be the case come Wednesday.
