Red Sox Ace Chris Sale to Have Tommy John Surgery
BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale will have Tommy John surgery on his left elbow. The operation would keep him out the entire 2020 baseball season if and when it resumes after the coronavirus pandemic. The team made the announcement two weeks after saying that the 30-year-old left-hander had a flexor strain near the elbow. At the time, the team hoped Sale would avoid the operation that usually requires a full year to recover from.
