Chris Sale is ready to start throwing again, telling the Globe that he will play catch on Monday for the first time since he was shut down with shoulder inflammation earlier this month.

“Getting back to it,’’ Sale said on Sunday after a 9-1 loss against the Tampa Bay Rays. “I feel good.’’

Sale was put on the disabled list on July 28 after feeling unexpected soreness following a start. He returned on Aug. 12 and fired five shutout innings against Baltimore, striking out 12.
