Chris Sale gets option picked up by the Red Sox

Chris Sale will remain with Boston in 2018 after the club exercised its $12.5 million option Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Fantasy Impact

This was a no-brainer move by the Red Sox. Sale had a Cy Young caliber season with 17 wins, 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 308 strikeouts. Expect Sale to be a top-five pitcher in fantasy going into 2018.
