Fantasy Impact

Chris Sale to undergo Tommy John surgery

Red Sox ace Chris Sale will undergo Tommy John surgery, the team announced on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

This is the news that everyone was afraid of, and it is something that Sale and the Red Sox were trying to avoid since last summer. Sale will now miss the entire 2020 season (whenever it starts) and likely the beginning of the 2021 season. In 2019, Sale struck out 218 batters over 147 1/3 innings with a 4.40 ERA.

Chris Sale resumes throwing program

Red Sox ace Chris Sale has resumed a throwing program in Fort Myers after being shut down earlier in the month due to what was ultimately diagnosed as a strained flexor tendon in his left forearm, according to a report from Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.

Fantasy Impact

Sale has been dealing with forearm and elbow issues since last year, and there continues to be an underlying concern that he will ultimately need Tommy John surgery. If he does not and rest and rehab work, then Sale could be one of the MLB players who benefits from the delay of the start of the regular season.

Chris Sale to be reassessed within the next week

Chris Sale (elbow) will be reassessed within the next week, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Fantasy Impact

Interim manager Ron Roenicke said Sale would be reassessed 10-to-14 days after the date he was originally shut down, which happened at the start of March. He is continuing with other workouts but will not do any throwing at least until this weekend. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.

Chris Sale dealing with flexor strain

The Red Sox say that Sale has a strained flexor in his throwing elbow and has been advised not to throw for at least another week.

Fantasy Impact

It's a minor bit of good news for now for Sale owners, though Sale himself conceded that Tommy John surgery is still a real possibility if he continues to feel pain when he throws again. He'll remain a polarizing player in re-draft leagues and see his value depressed in keeper/dynasty formats until there's more clarity on the injury one way or another.
