MINNEAPOLIS -- The next start for Chris Sale will come sometime within five or six days, manager Robin Ventura said before Monday's game.

Sale last pitched Friday in a 9-5 victory over the Rangers, and will get his third extended rest of the season in an effort to monitor his innings total and keep him fresh for September.

"It depends how he's feeling," said Ventura of Sale's next start. "Talking to him yesterday and flying up here, it wouldn't be a bad thing for him to have that time off to get refreshed and ready to go again."

Pitching coach Don Cooper said Sale would play catch on Tuesday and then throw a bullpen session two days before his next start. Cooper added that this weekend's starters against the Angels were lined up but wouldn't be announced until Tuesday.
