Red Sox's Chris Sale: Done for season
Sale (elbow) will miss the remainder of the regular season, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Sale received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his elbow and will be re-evaluated by Dr. James Andrews in six weeks. The news is a huge blow to Boston's chances of making the playoffs; even if the Red Sox make it into the postseason, Sale's recovery timeline makes it unlikely he'll be ready to pitch. On the bright side for Boston, the left-hander is expected to avoid Tommy John surgery after Dr. Andrews confirmed the original diagnosis of elbow inflammation. Sale's treatment plan could change, however, if he doesn't respond well to non-surgical recovery methods.
