Red Sox Make Surprising Chris Sale Revelation
The Boston Red Sox made a surprising Chris Sale revelation on Wednesday. The team plans on taking it slow with their pitcher.
Earlier this offseason, Sale was the subject of many trade talks between Boston and other organizations. For now, he appears to be staying pat.
This week, interim manager Ron Roenicke revealed that Sale will not be pitching until he is completely pain-free from the flexor strain injury that has been bothering him.
“[When he is] absolutely pain free,” he said.
“Like, today, I saw them in the training room going through exercises and probably testing out the elbow to make sure there’s nothing there.
“If there’s still pain there, we can’t have him start throwing. And I don’t mean just pain walking around. I mean, doing exercises and putting stress on it. I haven’t talked to [trainer] Brad [Pearson] this morning. I talked to one of the other trainers and they said he’s not going to throw today.”
At the moment, Sale does not appear to need surgery. This will be a situation to keep an eye on, though.
