Chris Sale Cleared To Begin Throwing By Dr. Andrews

Dec 2, 2019 3:42 AM

Dr. James Andrews has cleared Chris Sale to begin throwing with the goal of participating in Spring Training, Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom told WEEI Radio in Boston. Sale visited Andrews last week in Pensacola, Fla., and received the green light in a follow-up evaluation stemming from the PRP injection Sale received in his left pitching elbow back in August. Sale threw his last pitch on Aug. 13 before he was shut down for the remainder of the season with elbow inflammation.

“The rehab has gone very well and Chris is right where we want him to be,” Red Sox general manager Brian O’Halloran said at last month’s General Managers Meetings.

Max Scherzer: 'Literally Impossible' To Pitch With Neck Pain

Oct 28, 2019 7:41 AM

Max Scherzer couldn't get out of bed when he woke up on Sunday morning.

The pain in his neck and right trapezius muscle was so intense that his wife, Erica, had to help him get dressed.

That led to Scherzer being scratched from his scheduled start in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night.

"I'm as disappointed as I possibly can be not to be able to pitch tonight," Scherzer said. "It's Game 5 of the World Series. I've pitched through so much crap in my career that that would be easy to pitch through at this point. This is literally impossible to do anything with."

Joe Ross started in Scherzer's placed.
