Chris Sale was damaged goods. The narrative building throughout the offseason was that the lanky lefty would never recover from the elbow inflammation that ended his 2019 season. The Boston Red Sox would be trapped under the weight of his albatross of a contract at a time when they are desperately seeking payroll relief. The days went by without any updates regarding Sale’s status, leaving fans to brace themselves for the worst.
It’s time we put those concerns to rest. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, Sale visited Dr. James Andrews for his long-anticipated follow-up appointment last month.
