  • Chris Sale Won't Start On Opening Day

    Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale (wrist) won't start on Opening Day, which manager Alex Cora said was the plan all along. Cora also said there is "a good chance" that Corey Kluber will get the nod to kick off the 2023 regular season. Sale is one day after Kluber in the spring training rotation, so he's likely to get the ball in the second game of the regular season. The 33-year-old southpaw has been one of the most injured pitchers over the last few years, only making 11 starts (48 1/3 innings) over the last three seasons combined in Boston. The seven-time All-Star can still generate plenty of swings and misses when he's healthy, but the risk of injury has certainly made him less attractive to fantasy managers.

  • Chris Sale Goes Two Scoreless Innings In Spring Debut

    Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale (wrist) allowed two hits and struck out two in two scoreless innings in his Grapefruit League debut against the Detroit Tigers on Monday. It was a nice spring debut for the 33-year-old starting pitcher. He is healthy in camp, but the Red Sox were bringing him along slowly after he made just two starts in 2022 due to various injuries, including a fractured wrist that required surgery. There's potential for Sale to return to ace status for fantasy managers, but it's hard to get past his injuries in recent seasons. He's made only 11 starts (48 1/3 innings) over the last three years for the Red Sox. RotoBaller currently has Sale ranked as the No. 48 fantasy starter.
