Chris Sale will rejoin White Sox rotation on Thursday
White Sox ace Chris Sale will be activated off the 15-day DL and start against the Yankees on Thursday.
After losing slugger and first baseman Jose Abreu to the disabled list over the weekend, the White Sox got some good injury news on Wednesday:

Sale, 25, has missed more than a month with a flexor strain in his elbow. He struck out 11 in a four-inning minor league rehab start over the weekend and threw a bullpen session on Tuesday. Obviously the team believes he is healthy and ready to return to the rotation.
In four starts and 27 1/3 innings before getting hurt, Sale went 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA. He has gone 31-22 with a 3.01 ERA and a 4.30 K/BB ratio since moving into the rotation during the 2012 season, establishing himself as one of the very best pitchers in baseball.
