Red Sox’s Chris Sale Could Be In Line For Rehab Assignment

While his return is not imminent, Chris Sale continues to make progress and the Boston Red Sox ace could find himself pitching against live batters in the near future. The Boston Red Sox pitcher suffered a stress fracture to his rib cage ahead of spring training, and then, earlier this month, suffered a non-COVID medical issue that shut his throwing down temporarily.

Red Sox's Chris Sale: Throws bullpen Friday

Sale (ribs) threw 22-25 pitches during a bullpen session Friday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports. Sale threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday while mixing in all of his pitch types, and he increased his pitch count Friday. The southpaw is scheduled to throw three bullpen sessions next week, and the team is hoping he'll be able to begin a rehab assignment the week after that. However, the Red Sox will wait to make a firm decision on that timetable until they see how he feels following his throwing sessions next week.
