• According to Ventura, Chris Sale felt good the day after Monday's 40-pitch sideline session off the mound.

"Just continue to keep going down that path," said Ventura of his left-handed ace, who has been on the disabled list retroactive to April 18. "There's no setback, so you continue to just let him kind of go at his pace."

In keeping with the White Sox policy of not updating every Sale move on this road back, Ventura said his next session would be "in the near future."

"He's just progressing. I'm not sitting there planning a day for him," Ventura said. "I know [pitching coach Don Cooper] is doing most of that, but there's no setbacks. He's on his way."
