CHICAGO -- Chris Sale played catch again on Tuesday and is scheduled to play long toss Wednesday, per White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper. But the likelihood doesn't seem high for the White Sox ace to pitch this weekend in Cleveland, when he's eligible to come off the disabled list, where he landed because of the flexor muscle strain in his left arm.

"It's slim at the best," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura. "Again, he'll throw and we'll see how he does.

"He's going to be the best judge of that. We can sit here and make all the plans we want, but until he throws and feels 100 percent, he can go out there and nothing is going to jump back on him, then he would throw."

The White Sox have John Danks, Scott Carroll and Andre Rienzo listed in order as pitching probables this weekend at Progressive Field.
