As of today, June 11, the Red Sox are second in the East American with a record of 38 wins and 25 losses. However, the Boston club must do without the services of one of the best pitchers in the MLB, Chris Sale.
The veteran who is currently recovering from a Tommy John-type surgery appears to be getting closer to a return to the game and the main stakeholder claimed earlier this week that he was not going to object to returning as a reliever if we never ask him.
Note that no plan has been discussed between the pitcher and the team regarding the role he will occupy in the formation of the Sox.
But, this idea doesn’t seem to really please or even to be on the mind of team manager Alex Cora. While on an American radio station, the latter said that Sale is a guy that you get launched every five days because of his immense talent.
“This is how I see it. Obviously, we’ll have conversations throughout its process and see where we are. I hope he is in good health and that he will contribute to the success of the team, ”continued Cora.
I’m probably not the only one eager to see what the decision will be in his case. I’m especially looking forward to seeing if he returns to the game in form and is still among the top pitching players in the Big League.
Remember that Sale has not pitched in a Major game since 2019 and that he finished in the top-5 in the Cy Young poll from 2013 to 2018.
