Injury Update On Boston Red Sox' Starter Chris Sale

It was a tumultuous 2022 season for him.

Boston Red Sox' starter Chris Sale is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

When questioned by reporters on whether the Red Sox will open the season with a five-man starting rotation, manager Alex Cora simply stated, "We'll see."

Following his session on Wednesday, Sale is expected to throw another one on Saturday before progressing to live hitters next week.

Sale is getting early work in what is being described as a "normal spring," something the thirty-three-year-old has not enjoyed since the 2019 season.

The expectation is that Sale will be ready for the team's season opener.

Injuries have limited the left-handed pitcher to just 11 starts over the last three years due to injuries, and is coming off surgery to repair a fractured left wrist which he suffered in a bicycle accident last summer.

Since the 2019 season, Sale holds a 4.09 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, with 275 strikeouts across 195.2 innings and 36 starts.

Barring any setbacks or further injuries, Sale is expected to be the Red Sox' No. 1 starter.
