Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale suffered a setback in his recovery from a fractured rib cage suffered in late February, chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said before Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox.

"He's had a small, it's a personal medical issue -- it's not orthopedic, it's not COVID-related -- that paused his throwing for a little while," Bloom said.

"It's not baseball-related," he added. "He should be back throwing in a matter of days."
