The Boston Red Sox ace was torched with regularity over the first month of the season. However, his showings so far in May seem to indicate he’s put those struggles behind him and is back to his usual self.

One of Sale’s bigger tests of the season will be Sunday when he takes on a Houston Astros lineup that has been clubbing the ball for some time now.
