If a shoulder injury hadn't limited him to 158 innings, Sale would be competing with Max Scherzer for the top SP slot. He led all starters (with at least 150 IP) in K-BB% (32.9) and FIP (1.98) while posting a 2.11 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. While he'll draw no sympathy from Jacob deGrom, a dozen wins in 27 starts is a bit underwhelming for a superstar pitching for the World Series champions. He had previously topped 200 innings in three straight seasons and is turning 30 around Opening Day, so he's not necessarily a significant injury risk compared to the typical starter. Sale is a stud worth selecting as a staff anchor to end the first or commence the second round.

Chris Sale "would love" to stay in Boston

Chris Sale said Wednesday that he likes playing in Boston and would love to remain with the Red Sox for years to come.

Fantasy Impact

This isn't the first time Sale has indicated a willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Red Sox. Sale apparently enjoyed pitching in the World Series last year and would like to continue being a part of the winning organization. Still, there's no indication an extension is close to being signed. Sale is a free agent after 2019. He turns 30 at the end of March.
