Red Sox's Chris Sale: Looking to avoid end-of-season slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale acknowledged his late-season struggles in 2017 and plans to take measures to avoid a similar fate this season, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Sale admitted he was trying way too hard early in the season, ramping his fastball up to the mid-90s along with a wipeout slider in spring training. That carried over into the season's first half but was unsustainable over the long haul. His downturn started Aug. 1, when he allowed seven runs over five innings to the Indians and led to a 4.09 ERA over his final 11 starts. "You know I was new here last year. I came in and I felt like I had to prove something," Sale told reporters. "So I felt, part of me felt I had to come in and say 'hey, this is what you're getting.'" The left-hander said there's a different plan in place this year. Sale's reduced the amount of throws made during the offseason and will continue in that same vein in spring training.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Club picks up 2018 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will remain with Boston in 2018 after the club exercised its $12.5 million option Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

In the least surprising move of the offseason, the Red Sox picked up Sale's option to keep the southpaw for another season. In addition, Boston did the same with closer Craig Kimbrel, locking up the star pitchers through 2018.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Will start Game 1 of ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the Astros, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Sale showed some signs of fatigue in the second half, but overall was very impressive in his first year with the Red Sox. The 28-year-old compiled a 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 308 strikeouts in 214.1 innings during the regular season.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Won't start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will not start Sunday and will instead be saved to pitch Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros on Thursday of next week.

With the Red Sox wrapping up the AL East on Saturday, they will go with Hector Velazquez in the season finale and save their ace for the postseason. Sale will be pitching on nine days rest, and the Red Sox may be tempted to bring him back on short rest for Game 4, given the recent struggles of No. 4 starter Eduardo Rodriguez.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Will not start Sunday if Red Sox clinch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will start Sunday's game against the Astros only if the Red Sox haven't clinched the division following Saturday's results, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Boston's magic number going into Saturday is just one, so that means a Boston win, or a Yankees loss, would secure the AL East division title for the Red Sox. If both of those results go against Boston, Sale will take the mound to try and avoid the club having to play a one-game playoff for the division title with New York on Monday.
