Red Sox's Chris Sale: Starting Game 1 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Sale will make his start a day later than scheduled after Monday's game was postponed due to inclement weather in Boston. The southpaw will look to turn things around Tuesday, as he's 0-4 with an 8.50 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB through 18 innings (four starts) this season.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Scheduled start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale's scheduled start against the Tigers on Monday was postponed due to inclement weather, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. Sale figures to start one of the two games, though the Red Sox have yet to confirm which one. The southpaw has struggled through four starts this season, going 0-4 while posting an 8.50 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB through 18 innings.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Takes fourth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale (0-4) took the loss against the Yankees on Tuesday by giving up four runs on seven hits across five innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Sale was finally able to find his fastball velocity Tuesday as he averaged 95.5 mph, according to Ian Browne of MLB.com, but it didn't translate to a successful outing. The 30-year-old has now lost his first four starts of the season, equaling his loss total over 27 starts in 2018. Sale has a 8.50 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB through 18 innings and lines up to face the Tigers next Monday.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Gets personal catcher back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale will throw to his preferred catcher, Sandy Leon, Tuesday against the Yankees, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Leon was designated for assignment prior to the season in favor of Blake Swihart, but the Red Sox elected to bring him back at Swihart's expense Tuesday. Sale's start to the season has been concerning enough that there's no reason to believe Leon's return will cure everything (and it certainly won't increase his velocity), but throwing to his favorite battery-mate should be at least a small positive.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Getting extra day of rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sale's next start will come Tuesday against the Yankees, not Monday against the Orioles as originally expected, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

The Sale saga continues. The lefty has shown diminished velocity, thrown three poor starts and is now being handled with extreme caution by his team, getting a full week between starts. The team and player maintain that there's no particular problem with Sale's arm, but the signs all remain negative.
