This was just Sale’s second start of the 2022 season. He returned from a stress fracture in his rib cage, which he suffered late in spring training on July 12. On Sunday, Sale, who was replaced by Hirokazu Sawamura following the injury, allowed three runs – two earned – in just 2/3 of an inning.
After the game Sale told reporters, including the Boston Globe, he thinks he’ll miss 4-6 weeks. He will see a hand specialist either later Sunday or Monday to determine a more exact timeframe for his recovery.
Sale suffered the injury in the bottom of the first when a line drive off the bat of Aaron Hicks struck him on the hand. The Red Sox later announced the injury as a left fifth finger fracture, or pinkie fracture.
