Ok so this irritates me. This blurb is from rotoworld, at the very end it says " but the Red Sox may consider pushing him back a day after Thursday’s debacle."
Where does this info come from? Who indicated he's potentially being pushed back? Has this been determined, or mentioned anywhere among the Red Sox brass?
Chris Sale fared disastrously in his season debut, yielding six hits and seven runs over three miserable innings as the Red Sox fell to Seattle.
He struck out four, walked two and also hit a batter over 76 pitches. Appearing for the first time since signing a five-year, $145 million extension, the Mariners ate Sale alive, capitalizing on the left-hander’s complete lack of command. Sale didn’t show much confidence in his heater, which topped out at a pedestrian (at least relative to his usual standards) 94 mph. The seven-time All-Star struck out the side in the first but quickly unraveled after that, serving up three homers including two to Tim Beckham, who has never been touted for his power. Sale is tentatively lined up to face Oakland on Tuesday but the Red Sox may consider pushing him back a day after Thursday’s debacle.
