Sale (elbow) is scheduled to throw off a mound in late January, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The veteran left-hander remains without an official timeline for his return, but a return to mound work represents a significant step in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Sale underwent the procedure in March 2020 and figures to be sidelined for much of the first half of the 2021 campaign, but a more concrete timeline should come into focus and he ramps up his rehab work.
Sale remains without a clear timeline for his return from Tommy John surgery, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Sale underwent the procedure in late March. A typical recovery timeline would see him back on a big-league mound sometime in the middle of the 2021 season, though it's difficult to predict his exact return date with any precision. While manager Alex Cora declined to give a timeline for the lefty's return Tuesday, he did note that his recovery was coming along well.
Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said Wednesday that Sale (elbow) continues to make progress from his Tommy John surgery and could be fully stretched out for starting duty by the middle of next summer, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Sale still has several more checkpoints to meet in his recovery from the elbow procedure, but the first seven-plus months of his rehab program appears to have gone according to plan. The southpaw should be ready to throw off flat ground -- if not a mound -- by the end of spring training, but he'll still be ticketed for the 60-day injured list to begin the 2021 campaign.
Sale (elbow) has been playing catch for the past week, Ian Browne of the MLB.com reports. Boston manager Ron Roenicke received positive reports about Sale, the left-hander who underwent Tommy John surgery at the end of March. He's not expected to return until the middle of next season.
Sale (elbow) is expected to resume throwing in two or three weeks, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Sale is slowly but surely working his way back after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. The lefty is set to miss the entire 2020 campaign and some of the 2021 season while rehabbing.
