On OMFonWEEI, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sale has one more live batting practice session scheduled in Fort Myers next week. Sale is then likely headed on a rehab assignment. Cora would also add that Sale will not travel with the team when they head to the West Coast.

Cora would also add that Sale is expected to make his rehab start with either Portland or Worcester than the lower level teams within the system. He could make that start the second week of July. 

Sale had his pitches on full display during his batting practice session. The tall left-hander’s fastball was reportedly touching 95mph, this was the first time the team was checking his velocity.

In addition to his fastball touching 95mph, Sale was videoed throwing a nasty wiffleslider

"He looks really good. His velocity was good. Good slider. Good changeup. 18-20 pitches. The most important thing was the command was there,” said Cora.
