Red Sox ace Sale sent for MRI due to elbow soreness
- Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale is again dealing with an elbow injury ahead of the MLB season.
The Boston Red Sox have "some concern" over Chris Sale after the pitcher was sent for an MRI on his elbow.
Sale, a seven-time All-Star, missed the end of the 2019 MLB season due to a left elbow injury.
In a similar injury, the 30-year-old was sore on Monday, leading the Red Sox to send Sale for an MRI amid concerns the setback may be serious.
"Obviously there's some concern," Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said on Tuesday, via MLB.com.
"Knowing how his 2019 went and how important he is to us, there is some concern.
"But until we have all the information, we don't want to start speculating unnecessarily."
Sale, who joined the Red Sox from the Chicago White Sox ahead of the 2017 season, went 6-11 last year.
