Chris Sale certainly has lived up to the hype after his first two starts for the Boston Red Sox this season.
Sale is raising eyebrows with a 1.23 ERA, 17 strikeouts, and only two walks after 14 2/3 innings pitched over two starts in 2017.
Former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez has even taken notice and is impressed with the Red Sox’s newest ace. Martinez sees a lot of himself in Sale and gave him some high praise after what he’s witnessed so far.
To hear more of Martinez’s comments on Sale, check out the video above from “Red Sox Gameday Live,” presented by DCU.
