Chris Sale threw batting practice Wednesday before the White Sox played at their Class A affiliate, the Winston-Salem Dash, and said his neck felt much better.
Sale is expected to be at full strength when the Sox open their season in Cleveland on Friday.
The left-hander had been held back by spasms on the left side of his neck on Monday and Tuesday.
Also, Jake Peavy said he felt good the day after throwing 45 minutes in a minor league scrimmage on Tuesday in Glendale, Ariz. A White Sox spokesperson said Peavy, who has been dealing with rotator cuff tendinitis, experienced no residuals from the outing and that he remains on schedule.
He plans to pitch again on Sunday at extended spring training.
