Fantasy Impact:

Sale met with Dr. James Andrews today, who confirmed that the lefty was only dealing with inflammation. This is excellent news for Sale and the Red Sox in the long term, however, it's still unclear when the ace will return to pitching this season. For fantasy purposes you should do your best to keep him rostered until we hear what Boston is thinking for a timeline.
