    • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Notches 10th win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sale (10-3) allowed just a single run on four hits and two walks while striking out nine batters through 6.1 innings during Monday's win over the Twins. The lefty is posting another high-end fantasy campaign with a 2.77 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 12.3 K/9. He's a rare matchup-proof option and is building a strong Cy Young case. Sale projects to make his next start at Rogers Centre against the Blue Jays.

    • Sale (9-3) tossed 8.1 innings Tuesday night against the Royals, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out 10 batters en route to the win. Sale continued his dominant campaign, firing 79 of his 110 pitches for strikes while overmatching hitters with his fastball-slider combo. The ace southpaw now has 146 strikeouts on the season, which puts him on pace to set a new career best in whiffs. He was touched up for two home runs in the outing, with one being a solo shot in the second and the other coming in the ninth inning, but for the most part he continued to be his outstanding self on the mound. Sale's next assignment is projected to come Monday against the Twins.

    • Sale (8-3) allowed a single run on four hits and a walk while striking out 10 batters during Thursday's loss to Philadelphia. Surprisingly, Sale was outdone by rookie Nick Pivetta on Thursday, as the rookie Phillie shut out the Red Sox. Sale's 10 punchouts ease the blow of missing out on the victory, and the lefty now sports an elite 2.82 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 12.4 K/9. He projects to make his next start at Kauffman Stadium against the Royals.

    • Sale will get an extra day of rest during the current rotation and is scheduled to start Saturday at home against the Tigers, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. The Red Sox want Brian Johnson, pending the status of his hamstring injury, to fill in for Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) in Friday's series opener with the Tigers, pushing Sale out another day. After the soft-tossing Johnson on Friday, Sale's fastball will gain a few extra mph in the eyes of Detroit hitters.

    • Sale (7-2) allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out nine over six innings in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Orioles. Sale was presented with a 2-0 first-inning lead, only to have Pablo Sandoval's ruinous defense help hand three runs to the O's in the bottom of the frame, running up the left-hander's pitch count to 39. No problem; that just gave Sale an opportunity to show off his bulldog side, slamming the door on Baltimore over his final five innings. Sale is next scheduled to start Friday, when Boston returns home to face Detroit.
