Chris Sale may be starting the season on the injured list, but he still is making progress during spring training.
It’s been a long several months for the Boston Red Sox southpaw, who saw his 2019 season come to an early end after an elbow injury sidelined him with a month-and-a-half left to play. Sale has been making steady progress, but a bout of pneumonia delayed his spring training workload as a result.
And though he’s roughly two weeks behind, the 30-year-old still is making strides.
Sale threw a live batting practice ahead of Sunday’s game at JetBlue Park against the Atlanta Braves, where he threw his first pitch to a hitter since Aug. 13. (He was limited to 15 pitches, however, according to The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier.)
Check out some of Sale’s pitches, via the Boston Herald’s Tom Keegan:
We can’t wait to see what this guy has up his sleeve this season.
