Red Sox place Sale on dis­abled list again

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

The Bos­ton Red Sox have re­turned ace Chris Sale to the 10-day dis­abled list on Satur­day af­ter just one healthy start.

The left-han­der was al­ready on the DL with left shoul­der in­flam­ma­tion once this month. He was activated against the Ori­oles on Sunday and struck out 12 bat­ters in five in­nings. He is 12-4 with a 1.97 ERA.

But with Bos­ton cruis­ing to a big lead in the AL East, Sale will get some rest for what the team hopes will be a long play­off run. The move Satur­day was retroac­tive to Wed­nes­day. To fill his ros­ter spot, the Red Sox re­called righty Brandon Work­man from Triple-A Pawtucket. com­plete-game shutout, strik­ing out nine and lowering his ERA to 1.71 as New York de­feated host Philadel­phia.
