Chris Sale hits 95 mph with fastball

After two innings, Chris Sale reached 95 mph on the radar gun in the Red Sox's home opener. The team's ace had apparently been incredibly ill during his first two starts of the year.

Fantasy Impact:

Velocity concerns have been present all spring and even more so after his first two outings. While it's still early in the game, seeing his velocity up and knowing he was ill should give owners a slightly reduced level of concern. The team has maintained their position that he's physically healthy and they did give him a large contract extension prior to the start of the season. There should be a bit of patience and trust given to the Red Sox's organization in how they handle Sale.
