There is no timetable for his return at the moment.
In the meantime, however, there is a bit of good news about Sale for Red Sox fans.
Red Sox insider Chris Cotillo tweeted that Sale says he is doing much better and will begin throwing early next week.
Chris Sale said he’s feeling much better and plans to start throwing early next week. Still no timetable for a return. But he’s in good spirits and much improved.

Progress For Sale
Sale appears to be in good spirits right now, as Cotillo notes.
Cotillo also mentioned that there is still no timetable for Sale’s eventual return, but the good news for Red Sox fans is that he will begin throwing again soon.
Boston is looking solid heading into the 2022 regular season.
They did also begin the 2021 season without Sale, who at the time was rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, and Boston got off to a pretty solid start, boasting the second-best record in the American League by the end of April.
How long Sale is out will play a huge role in Boston’s rotation plans.
If he misses significant time, perhaps there will be a need to add another starter via trade.
But if Sale can come back in plenty of time and not miss a significant portion of the regular season, the Red Sox should be fine when he returns.
