Analysis: He threw from the mound on Friday, just three weeks after injuring his foot. Sale says he hopes to be back soon - maybe the second week of the regular season. Sale says he started throwing against a wall on one knee just four days after the broken foot was diagnosed on Feb. 27, but he needs to work on the other aspects of the game before he can return.

Analysis: Sale, who was injured Feb. 27 in an accident at home, was expected to miss the April 6 opener in Kansas City but the team made it official on Wednesday. He will not resume baseball activities for at least 10 more days. White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams told MLB Network on Wednesday that the team was taking Sale on "a little slower road" rather than rush him back in time for the opener.
