Red Sox P Sale out rest of ’22 after wrist surgery

Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on his right wrist, the team announced Tuesday.

Sale suffered a right distal radius (wrist) fracture during a bike accident Saturday, according to the team’s statement. He had surgery Monday.

Sale, who suffered a fractured left pinkie against the New York Yankees on July 17, was expected to return from that injury before the end of the season. He threw only 5⅔ innings in two appearances this season.

The seven-time All-Star has had multiple injuries over the past few seasons, including breaking a rib while working out on his own during the lockout.

Last season, he went 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA in nine starts in his return from Tommy John surgery.

He is currently in the third year of a five-year, $145 million deal.

Sale, 33, is expected to be ready for the start of spring training in 2023.
