Headline: Former White Sox pitcher and Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale to undergo Tommy John surgery
Byline: Vinnie Duber
We don't know when the 2020 baseball season will start. But we know Chris Sale won't be pitching when it does.
The former White Sox ace is slated for Tommy John surgery, the Boston Red Sox announced on Thursday, ending weeks of speculation that the guy who pitched the final outs of the 2018 World Series would undergo the procedure.
The White Sox dealt Sale away in December 2016, jumpstarting their rebuilding effort with a blockbuster trade that brought Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech to the South Side.
