Chris Sale breaks wrist, out for season

Chris Sale recently broke his right wrist in a biking accident. He underwent surgery on Monday and will miss the rest of the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

A tough year for Sale will end after just 5.2 innings pitched. If all goes well, Sale should be good to go for the start of the 2023 season, especially since this wrist injury happened on his non-throwing hand. He'll be in his age 34 season in 2023 and should still be considered as a good source of Ks in any fantasy rotation, but his durability will remain a concern as he progresses in his career.

Chris Sale has started playing catch

Red Sox manager Alex Cora indicated Friday that Chris Sale has started playing catch as he continues to work back from surgery on his finger. There is still no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Impact

Sale has only pitched in two games this season, and was removed in the first inning of his July 17th start after fracturing his left fifth finger. With no timetable for the veteran starter to return, fantasy managers should plan on potentially being without him for the remainder of the season.

Chris Sale rejoins the team Monday

Chris Sale rejoined the Red Sox Monday. He is expected to miss four-to-six weeks after having surgery on his fractured finger.

Fantasy Impact

Sale’s 2022 season has been filled with rehabbing injures. He has made just two starts this season, pitching 5 2/3 innings, with a 3.18 ERA, and five strikeouts. Fantasy managers should expect Sale to be out until at least late-August.

Chris Sale undergoes surgery on fractured finger

Chris Sale underwent an open reduction and internal fixation of a left fifth finger proximal phalanx fracture on his left hand on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This is just a fancy way to say that Sale had surgery on his fractured finger and, specifically, that he had his bone put back in place and a pin inserted. There is no timetable for his return as of yet, but Sale himself floated a 4-to-6 week absence when he spoke about the injury on Sunday. Either way, expect Sale to pitch again this season, but likely not until late-August or September.

Chris Sale diagnosed with fractured finger

Chris Sale has been diagnosed with a fracture of his left fifth finger.

Fantasy Impact

Sale's pinkie finger was hit by a line drive in the first inning of Sunday's game against the Yankees and he immediately walked off the field. It's an awful break for the ace pitcher who was making just his second start of the season. It's unclear how much time he'll miss but a fractured finger on a pitching hand is almost certain to be a relatively lengthy absence, so fantasy managers beginning their preparation for the stretch run should be prepared to be without Sale for the majority of the remainder of the season. The Red Sox should provide a timetable for his return later today or over the All-Star break.
