Should the Boston Red Sox be concerned about overusing southpaw Chris Sale in the second half of the 2017 Major League Baseball season?

In recent years, the Red Sox’s ace hasn’t been as effective in the second half of the season.

Compared to Sale’s career record of 59-22 and 2.74 ERA before the All-Star break, the left-hander is 27-32 with a 3.22 ERA post-All-Star break in eight seasons.

For more on the Red Sox’s use of Sale in the second half, check out the video above from “Red Sox Gameday Live,” presented by DCU.
