Chris Sale News

Chris Sale Has Tommy John Surgery

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery last Thursday. It was already announced more than a week ago that Sale would need elbow reconstruction and miss the entire 2020 season, if there even is a season, but he didn't have the operation until late last week. The hard-throwing left-hander will also miss a good chunk of the first half of the 2021 season as well. The 31-year-old has elite swing-and-miss stuff, but his 2019 season was also a disappointment because of arm issues, and he had a weak 4.40 ERA while still managing 13.3 strikeouts per nine innings. It's fair to wonder if he'll be as dominating when he returns next season, but we wouldn't bet against the seven-time All-Star. Hopefully you had your draft after we learned that he'd miss all of 2020.

Chris Sale Will Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale (elbow) will undergo Tommy John Surgery, according to the Red Sox. The 30-year-old was hoping to avoid the possibility of going down this route, but multiple setbacks during the spring have forced the left-hander to come to the decision to have surgery. Sale could be safely dropped in standard re-draft formats, while owners in dynasty leagues could hope to see the left-hander back in action at some point in 2021. Hopefully your league hasn't had its draft yet, as Sale was still going in the early rounds as a low-end fantasy ace with risk before this news.

Chris Sale Resumes Throwing Program

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale (forearm) has resumed throwing in recent days for the first time since he was shut down due to a flexor tendon strain. Sale has begun a throwing program, but a report suggested the left-hander could need to undergo surgery if he feels discomfort during progression. The 30-year-old will benefit from the delayed start to the 2020 Major League Baseball season, as he could be ready to go for the new Opening Day date depending on his progression over the coming months, giving fantasy owners hope that the left-hander will produce a bounce-back campaign in 2020.
