Red Sox's Chris Sale: To pitch two innings Tuesday
Sale (shoulder) will serve as Boston's "opener" against Toronto on Tuesday. He will be limited to two innings or 40 pitches, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Sale will continue to rebuild his arm strength without the benefit of a minor-league rehab assignment, so he'll instead make an appearance with the Red Sox. The left-hander was only able to make one start during the month of August due to separate stints on the DL with shoulder inflammation. Once he's gotten in his work, Nathan Eovaldi will enter the game for Boston. Manager Alex Cora added that Sale will "build up an inning at a time every five days," so he's expected to pitch three innings Sunday versus the Mets if all goes well.
