Sale faded just a tad down the stretch to take his truly remarkable season down to just an outstanding one. Sale struck out an incredible 308 batters, kept his WHIP below 1.00, and won 17 games for the second straight year. Although Sale entered the league with injury concerns because of his slight frame and wild delivery, he has surpassed 200 innings pitched in four of the last five seasons, and is a true ace of a fantasy staff. Whether you draft him before Corey Kluber, Max Scherzer, or even Clayton Kershaw is simply a matter of personal preference at this point.

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.
