BREAKING NEWS: Sox Put Sale Back On DL
BREAKING NEWS: What is going on with Chris Sale? The Red Sox have put the ace lefty back on the 10-day disabled list with more shoulder inflammation.
Sale was sceduled to pitch vs Tampa Bay tomorrow.
Instead he goes back on the DL for 10 days, retroactive to last Wednesday. That means the earliest he could pitch again would be Sunday, August 26th.
Sale's quote in a team release...
"When I started throwing again, [my shoulder] just kind of didn't respond the way we wanted it to," said Sale. "[It] didn't really bounce back the way we wanted it to. [We'll] just kind of adjust and kind of map things out and see where it takes us."
Sale spent the first two weeks on August on the DL with the same shoulder inflammation. He then pitched five innings vs Baltimore, giving up one hit and striking out 12.
Brandon Workman has been called up from Pawtucket.
