After taking a 107 MPH line drive off the bat of Yankee Aaron Hicks, has resulted in a broken finger for Chris Sale, the Red Sox Pitcher. Although it’s not clear how long Sale will be out at this point, after just recovering from an injury and now dealing with this, there is a chance that Sale’s return may take longer than Red Sox fans expect.

Chris Sale was obviously upset after the game but tried to find positives from what had happened.
Sale had the following to say about his broken finger:
“What can you do? Everyone gets knocked down. How do you get back up? That’s where I’m at again,” Sale said, via NESN. “So, get back up, dust yourself off, clean it off, get back to it.
“Some of the other stuff, sometimes you think, ‘Why me?’ But two things I know for a fact right now: I have a lot of love in my corner, many people that care about me and want me to succeed. And somebody somewhere is having a worse day that I am right now. That’s a fact,”
“The competitive side of me doesn’t want to accept that, but the person in me knows that. And if I want to sit here and cry about a broken finger and boohoo for me, I could do it. It’s just not fair to everyone in here, and it’s not fair to people in the world, honestly. As I said, there are a lot more people out there worse off than I am right now.”
The Boston Red Sox currently stand at 48-45 going into the All-Star break. They are currently 16.5 games behind first-place New York Yankees (AL East). They have won only three of their last ten games before the all-star break.
This struggling rotation will not be helped by the loss of Sale. This should indicate that Boston will make moves at the MLB Trade Deadline this year.
