  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Breaks wrist, done for season

    The Red Sox announced that Sale (finger) underwent season-ending surgery Monday to repair a fractured right wrist, which he suffered in a bicycle accident over the weekend. The team expects him to be a full participant for the start of spring training. The broken wrist is the latest in a growing list of long-term injuries for Sale, whose availability for the remainder of the 2022 campaign had already been in question after he underwent surgery July 18 to repair a broken left pinkie finger. Sale's rehab for the broken wrist now becomes the more pressing concern, but if there's any positive takeaway, it's that the injury is to his non-throwing arm, and he should have plenty of time to make a full recovery before he reports to the Red Sox's spring training facility next February. Because Sale is still due $75 million over the next three years, he's unlikely to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract this winter after injuries have limited him to just 57.1 regular-season and playoff innings with Boston since the start of the 2020 season.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Starts playing catch

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sale played catch Friday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his broken pinkie finger. Sale underwent surgery July 18, a procedure described as "an open reduction and internal fixation of a left fifth finger proximal phalarix fracture." The club has not given a timetable for his return.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Officially lands on injured list

    Sale (finger) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday. Sale was diagnosed with a broken left pinky finger Monday and has been ruled out for at least a month. Given that news, his move to the injured list was a formality to clear a roster spot. Brayan Bello was recalled from Triple-A Worcester in the corresponding move.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Undergoes finger surgery

    Sale underwent surgery on his broken left pinky finger Monday. Sale suffered a left fifth finger proximal phalanx fracture after being hit by a comebacker in the first inning Sunday against the Yankees. In other words, he broke his left pinky finger and will now be out at least a month following surgery. Sale believes he will pitch again this season and we've yet to see an official timeline from the Red Sox. Nonetheless, the left-hander won't likely be fantasy relevant until early September at the soonest.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Confident season isn't over

    Sale (finger) will see a specialist in Boston on Sunday or Monday and is confident he will pitch again this season, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. The Red Sox didn't offer a timetable for Sale, who was removed in the first inning of his start Sunday against the Yankees with a fractured left pinkie finger. Sale suggested a personal 4-to-6-week recovery timetable, though the typical timeline for this kind of injury is 6-to-8 weeks. While Sale's season may not be over, fantasy managers in shallower leagues without injured-list spots may not be able to justify stashing him.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Fractured finger confirmed

    The Red Sox confirmed that Sale was diagnosed with a fractured left pinkie finger after taking a comebacker off the hand during the first inning of his start Sunday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. The team didn't offer a timeline for Sale's return, but Bill Koch of The Providence Journal notes that a rehab program for an injury of this sort to a pitcher's throwing hand typically entails a recovery period of up to two months. If the Red Sox determine Sale needs surgery to address the injury, he would likely miss the rest of the regular season and would need Boston to make a deep playoff run to have a shot at pitching again in 2022. The setback is a devastating blow for the Red Sox and for Sale, who missed all of the 2020 campaign and most of the 2021 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, then was sidelined for the first three months of the current season with a fractured right rib cage. Sunday's outing against New York marked just his second start of the season.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Exits with possible finger fracture

    Sale was removed in the first inning of his start Sunday against the Yankees after he took a comebacker to his left pinkie finger, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. He was charged with three runs (two earned) on two hits while recording just two outs prior to his departure. The Red Sox likely won't have a firm diagnosis for Sale's injury until later Sunday or Monday, but the southpaw may be dealing with a dislocation or fracture after he was smoked on his pitching hand by an Aaron Hicks line drive that was clocked at 106.7 miles per hour. If a fracture is confirmed, Sale could be in store for his second extended stint on the injured list of the season after he missed the first three months of the campaign while recovering from a stress fracture to the right side of his rib cage.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Five shutout innings in return

    Sale struck out five in five scoreless innings while allowing three hits and a walk in a 3-2 loss Tuesday in Tampa Bay. He did not factor into the decision. In his season debut for the Red Sox, Sale scattered three hits and a walk and tossed 53 of his 78 pitches for strikes. He left the game with a 2-0 lead, but the Red Sox bullpen allowed three runs in the sixth, denying Sale the opportunity to earn the win. The lefty was reportedly capped at 85 pitches, so it's no surprise he was pulled after five. While the Red Sox have not yet made an official announcement on the weekend's starters, it's possible Sale could start Sunday against the Yankees.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Officially reinstated

    The Red Sox activated Sale (ribs) from the 60-day injured list prior to his scheduled start Tuesday against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Sale will make season debut versus a depleted Rays lineup. The lefty displayed good stuff and velocity during his minor-league rehab starts but struggled with command at times, so he may not find immediate success in his first big-league start since October. He's expected to be capped at around 85 pitches Tuesday.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: On pitch limit Tuesday

    Sale (ribs) is scheduled to throw about 85 pitches when he makes his season debut Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Sale, who was up to 72 pitches in his final rehab outing for Triple-A Worcester last Wednesday, will be working on an extra day of rest. He's penciled in to next start Sunday against the Yankees, the final game before the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Tuesday return confirmed

    Sale (rib) has been officially announced as the starter for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Sale is finally ready to go after missing the first half of the season with a stress fracture in his rib cage. He was shaky in his final rehab outing, walking five batters in 3.2 innings of work, but the Red Sox nonetheless decided he's ready for his season debut. Expect some workload limitations early on in his return, however, given that he topped out at four innings across his four rehab appearances.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Season debut likely coming Tuesday

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that Sale (rib) will likely be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Tuesday's game at Tampa Bay, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. "He'll pitch Tuesday. Somewhere, he'll pitch Tuesday, but there's a good chance he'll pitch with us," Cora said. Cora still left the door open a crack for Sale's next outing to come in the minors, but all signs point to the southpaw slotting back into the Boston rotation next week for what would be his first appearance with the big club since the 2021 postseason. He didn't make a start in spring training after suffering a stress fracture on the right side of his rib cage in a mid-March throwing session, but the 33-year-old looks to be healthy again after a nearly four-month layoff. Though Sale was far from sharp in his fourth rehab outing with Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday -- he issued five walks in 3.2 innings -- he still struck out five batters and built up to 77 pitches. Assuming he's activated for Tuesday's game, Sale should face only a light restriction with his workload.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Struggles to throw strikes in rehab

    Sale (rib) worked 3.2 innings Wednesday in his rehab start for Triple-A Worcester, striking out five while allowing one earned run on three hits and five walks. Heading into the night, Sale was targeting a 4-to-5-inning appearance for the fourth start of his rehab assignment, but the five free passes foiled those plans. Even so, Sale still managed to get stretched out a bit more, as he tossed 72 pitches (42 strikes) Wednesday after throwing 52 pitches in his previous outing. Though Sale's results were less than ideal, the Red Sox may still be comfortable enough bringing him back from the 60-day injured list after a lengthy layoff. He could be activated as soon as Monday's series opener in Tampa Bay.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Starting Wednesday in Triple-A

    Sale (ribs) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. The Red Sox hope Sale, who completed four innings in Thursday's start at Double-A, gets through five frames next time out. If so, he could make his 2022 debut as soon as July 11 in Tampa Bay. Sale's been touching the mid-90s with his fastball during the rehab assignment, which is a promising sign as he nears activation from the 60-day injured list.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Gets to 52 pitches

    Sale (ribs) allowed one earned run on four hits while striking out seven across four innings in his rehab appearance with Double-A Portland on Thursday. Sale was scheduled to throw three innings, but he got in some extra work and brought his pitch count up to 52. Per Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe, Sale will participate in at least one more rehab appearance with the goal of working five innings while throwing roughly 65 to 70 pitches. If that goes according to plan, Sale could rejoin the Red Sox on July 10 or 11.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Slated for three-inning start

    Sale (rib cage) will throw three innings in a rehab start for Double-A Portland on Thursday, Henry Palattella of MLB.com reports. Sale made two rehab starts for Boston's affiliate in the Florida Complex League, most recently throwing 2.2 innings Saturday. The lefty will return to Boston for a bullpen session Monday before heading north to Portland (Maine). It looks like Sale is being prepped to be part of Boston's roster after the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Builds innings in FCL

    Sale (rib cage) allowed three hits and no walks while striking out six over 2.2 scoreless innings in a rehab start for the Florida Complex League Red Sox on Saturday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. Sale built up innings during his second FCL start after throwing one frame last Monday. The fastball was between 92 and 96 mph. Next up for the left-hander is a bullpen session in Florida followed by a third rehab start at Double-A Portland, according to Red Sox manager Alex Cora. If he remains on a five-day schedule, Sale would start for the Sea Dogs on Thursday. A fourth rehab start could come at Triple-A Worcester, which is at home the following week.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Stays in FCL for second rehab start

    Sale (rib cage) is expected to make his next rehab start Saturday for the Red Sox's rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Sale felt fine after tossing a 22-pitch inning in his 2022 debut with the FCL club Monday, and assuming he comes out of his between-starts bullpen session no worse for the wear, he'll be back on the mound this weekend in Florida. Expect the southpaw to push for around 2-to-3 innings Saturday while the Red Sox have him steadily build up to a starter's workload. After his second outing in the FCL, Sale is expected to report to a full-season affiliate to continue his rehab assignment.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Throws inning in rehab start

    Sale (ribs) allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one over one inning in a rehab start Monday for the Red Sox's rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate. Sale threw 22 pitches against the Rays' affiliate during the inning, which included a strikeout of a rehabbing Wander Franco (quadriceps). Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters over the weekend that the left-hander was going to pitch two innings, but the Red Sox confirmed that was miscommunication about Sale's workload. If he comes out of Monday's outing without any setbacks, Sale is expected to pitch again in five days as he ramps up his pitch and innings count, although it's unclear where he will throw.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Rehab begins Monday

    Sale (ribs) will begin a rehab assignment in the Florida Complex League on Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Sale has been out all year while recovering from a stress fracture in his right rib cage. The Red Sox went back and forth on whether he'd be best served returning as a starter or reliever but eventually decided that a return to his starting role would be best. That means he'll need quite a long rehab process, which may keep him out until sometime around the All-Star break.
