Chris Sale to undergo Tommy John Surgery, will miss 2020 season

Published

on

Things just keep on getting worse for the Boston Red Sox.

The team announced that their ace Chris Sale will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair his left throwing elbow. This means he will be sidelined for the entire 2020 MLB season, whenever that resumes.

The 30-year old had been experiencing elbow discomfort throughout Spring Training, and had went to get multiple opinions from doctors on how to repair the possible injury. When he resumed his throwing program earlier this week, the pain resurfaced in the elbow, and that’s when they realized season-ending surgery was the only realistic option.

Sale, who is entering the first season of a five-year, $145 million extension, is coming off an injury plagued 2019 campaign where he posted a 6-11 record, a career worst 4.40 ERA, and a 1.09 WHIP in 25 starts.

The seven-time MLB All-Star led the team to a World Series title in his first season in Boston back in 2018.

Extension talks between Anthony Rizzo and Chicago Cubs have stalled

Anthony Rizzo’s future with the Chicago Cubs remains up in the air. And if you’re a fan of the team, you can’t be too confident about it after today.

According to reports, talks about a possible contract extension between the club and their All-Star first baseman have reached an impasse, meaning nothing will be done prior to opening day. This likely means Rizzo will play out the final season of his seven-year, $41 million contract extension and test unrestricted free agency this offseason.

The 31-year old, who has been with the Cubs since 2012 and won a World Series with them back in 2016, has posted a combined .274 batting average, .866 OPS, 228 homers and 744 RBI over a span of nine seasons and 1265 games with the franchise.
