Red Sox Chris Sale shines out of rehab hits nearly

Boston Red Sox received and shared very good news in the last hours as it was announced that Chris Sale showed off in his rehabilitation outing at Minor League (MiLB) branches and during his monticular work he launched lines that reached almost 100 miles per hour (mph). It is expected that the pitcher will soon be able to return to see action in the baseball of the MLB.

Chris Sale was the starting pitcher for the Worcester Red Sox, a minor league (MiLB) branch of the Boston Red Sox, as part of his rehabilitation process, work in which he showed off and demonstrated his physical improvement.

The pitcher had a full five-inning outing pitched, in which he allowed five hits, an earned run and struck out seven batters. In addition, of the 81 shipments to the plate he made, 51 were strikes and his fastballs touched 96 mph.

Chris Sale is recovering from the Tommy John surgery he underwent several months ago and according to Red Sox manager Alex Cora himself, he could return to pitch in MLB before the end of the season.

The 32-year-old pitcher hasn’t been on a Major League mound since 2019, before he suffered the injury. That year saw action in 25 games for Boston, in which he posted a 6-11 win-loss record, as well as a 4.40 ERA.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
