Chris Sale Gives Perfect Answer To Question About Opening Day Pitch Count


Chris Sale is ready to go for the Boston Red Sox’s Opening Day game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday.

The left-hander took a line drive off his left hip in his final spring training start, but Sale told the media Wednesday that he has “no-lingering effects” from the incident.

Sale had a brilliant first season with the Red Sox, but the lefty tired toward the end of the season after throwing a career-high 214 1/3 innings pitched. But when asked if he would be on a pitch count for his first start of the season, Sale gave a perfect answer.

“If it were up to me I’d start the game and finish it,” Sale said, via ESPN.

The 28-year-old will be making his fourth career Opening Day start when he takes the mound at Tropicana Field to kickoff the 2018 season.
