Red Sox's Chris Sale: Throws another bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale tossed a bullpen session off the mound Wednesday afternoon prior to Friday's start in Game 1 of the ALDS, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Per Cotillo, Sale also threw an "abbreviated" bullpen Tuesday inside the batting cages. Sale will come into his start Friday on eight days rest after logging 4.2 innings against the Orioles on Sept. 26. Manager Alex Cora said that he doesn't expect Sale to have any limitations during Friday's start, though he hasn't pitched into the sixth inning since late July due to a shoulder injury. Following Sale will be David Price on Saturday for Game 2 and likely Rick Porcello in Game 3 once the series heads out of Boston.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk over 4.2 innings while striking out eight as the Red Sox fell 10-3.

While the southpaw wasn't at his best, he did get stretched out to 92 pitches (58 strikes) and shouldn't have any limitations when Boston begins its playoff run. Sale wraps up the regular season with a 2.11 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 237:34 K:BB in 158 innings.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Shooting for 90 pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale is expected to push for 90 pitches in his start Wednesday against the Orioles, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Sale, who threw 73 pitches and 3.1 innings in his last start against Cleveland, will pitch the nightcap of Wednesday's doubleheader. The Red Sox have gradually increased Sale's workload since the left-hander returned from a second stint on the disabled list due to shoulder soreness. There have been no setbacks, but Sale's fastball velocity was at 93.5 mph in his previous start while his season average is 96.2 mph, per BrooksBaseball.net.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Fans seven in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale struck out seven and walked zero in 3.1 innings Friday against the Indians, allowing two runs on five hits in a no-decision.

Sale stretched out his pitch count again, throwing 73 pitches (48 strikes) in Friday's outing, the most he's thrown in three starts since coming off the disabled list. He would figure to extend things a little further in his next start as the Red Sox gear up for the postseason. The left-hander has a crisp 2.00 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and a 229:33 K:BB in 153.1 innings this season. His next scheduled start will be a matchup with the Orioles at home.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Works three scoreless frames vs. Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale tossed three shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out one in Sunday's win over New York. He didn't factor into the decision.

Sale managed to throw multiple innings for the first time since suffering a shoulder issue. He tossed 27 of 42 pitches for strikes and looked sharp on the hill. The 29-year-old stated after the game that if he remains on schedule, he should be built up to around 100 pitches for the beginning of the postseason, per Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. Sale's next outing figures to come Saturday against Cleveland barring a setback.
