Red Sox's Chris Sale: Electric in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (12-4) allowed one hit and struck out 12 over five scoreless innings to pick up the win in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Baltimore.

Sale was making his return from the disabled list after rehabbing a mild case of shoulder inflammation. It was odd that he was allowed to only throw five innings and 68 pitches, particularly after Boston's bullpen was needed for 15.2 innings over the last two days, which included a doubleheader Saturday, but manager Alex Cora told reporters in his post-game remarks that Sale was on a 75-pitch ceiling. Sale's pitch count should increase the next time he takes the mound Friday at home against the Rays.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Returns from DL on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday.

The dominant southpaw wound up missing just under two weeks due to a bout of shoulder inflammation. Sale is in the midst of another excellent year, producing a 2.04 ERA and a 13.2 K/9 in 141 frames. He'll make his inaugural start off the DL against Alex Cobb and the last-place Orioles. Brandon Workman was sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Ready after bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (shoulder) threw nearly 50 pitches in a bullpen session Thursday and declared he's ready to go Sunday against Baltimore, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Sale was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a mild case of inflammation in his shoulder. The Red Sox were probably looking for a reason to shut him down a bit as the left-hander tired toward the end of last season. From August through the end of the 2017 season, Sale posted a 4.09 ERA.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Set to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (shoulder) will return from the disabled list Sunday against the Orioles, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The Red Sox have given Sale a bit of time off to rest an inflamed shoulder as they prepare to play deep into October. He'll get an easy assignment in his first game back, taking on the recently-dismantled Orioles.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Plays catch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (shoulder) played catch prior to Sunday's game and is expected to throw again during Monday's off day, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

The Red Sox will have a better idea where Sale's at following Monday's session. If all goes well, Sale will likely slot back into the rotation during the upcoming weekend, starting one of the Red Sox's three games against the Orioles between Aug. 11 and 12. Manager Alex Cora said that while nothing is physically wrong with Sale, the left-hander would be better served returning later in the week so as to avoid having to bat Tuesday or Wednesday, when the Red Sox visit Philadelphia for an interleague series.
