Red Sox Ace Chris Sale Suffered Another Major Injury Setback

Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale underwent season-ending surgery on Monday after breaking his right wrist during a bike accident, the team announced via

"On Monday, Boston Red Sox left-handed pitcher Chris Sale underwent an open reduction and internal fixation of a right distal radius (wrist) fracture," wrote. "The procedure was performed by Dr. Matthew Leibman at the Newton-Wellesley Outpatient Surgery Center in Wellesley, MA."

Sale (0-1, 3.18 ERA), who has dealt with several injuries during the past three seasons, was limited to just 5.2 innings in two Major League starts in 2022, both of which came in losses to the AL East rival Tampa Bay Rays (3-2) and New York Yankees (13-2).

Sale was acquired by the Red Sox in a trade with the Chicago White Sox ahead of the 2017 season.

The left-hander was a member of Boston's World Series championship team in 2018 and led the American League in strikeouts during the 2015 and 2017 seasons.

However, injuries have kept Sale off the field during each of the past three seasons, including the entire COVID-limited 2020 MLB season.

Sale returned to the Red Sox last month after experiencing a stress fracture in his right rib cage, which occurred during a private workout in February while recovering from Tommy John surgery from the previous year.
