Chris Sale (P) BOS - Apr. 07

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740585

Sale (elbow) will be out of his arm cast and start rehabbing Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: While speaking with reporters Tuesday -- a little over a week after undergoing Tommy John surgery -- Sale mentioned that he's ready to shed his cast and begin the long rehabilitation process. The lefty is hoping to rehab at jetBlue Park at Fenway South in Fort Myers, Florida, though he can do most of the early-stage work at home if necessary. Sale mentioned that he's "really happy" with where he's at now, as the surgery offered a "definitive answer, a finish line," per Speier. "I've been chasing a ghost for seven months," Sale said.

And the answer is in: TJ.

Bill James just posted a poll on Twitter How many Innings will Chris Sale finish with this season?

It's really driver for his value.  If you give him 155 IP like the past two years, he's worth one thing, but if he's at 100 IP, his value goes down by 1/3.  I have a feeling his price may vary wildly over the next few weeks while more information becomes available.  I have one draft on March 22 and another on March 28.  His price could vary a lot if he's deemed ready to go by then or if he's out with a specific timeframe.

Fell all the way to me in a late 6th round pick in yesterday's CBS 12-team AL/NL mock.

Jen McCaffrey in The Athletic:

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Chris Sale walked out of the Red Sox clubhouse at JetBlue Park around 1 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.

“I’m alive,” he said with a smirk when asked how he was doing by a reporter who was surprised to see him.

Two hours earlier, interim manager Ron Roenicke had told reporters in Tampa ahead of the team’s game against the Yankees that Sale was headed for an MRI on his elbow as a result of soreness following his live batting practice session on Sunday, in which he threw 15 pitches.

“I’ve got more information to get and I’ll let you guys know tomorrow,” Sale added as he walked toward his car...

Plus, it seems like it spreads relatively easily, although most cases are mild.  Entire teams could go down. Considering players' use of common carriers (hotels and airplanes), their likeliness of contracting the virus are probably higher than most.

Sale's bout with pnemonia has me thinking ...

Covid could be a MAJOR disruptor to this year's MLB season.  And it will be totally random ... but any player who tests positive will end up immediately sidelined for weeks.

And now he might not be ready to start the season due to pneumonia.  Pricing AL pitching is looking rough this year.  Mid-Feb. and already Paxton, Clevenger, Sale, Ohtani, Pineda, German missing time, NL pitchers coming over to place like Toronto, and guys like Kluber and Gibson moving to hitters' parks (assuming the new Ranger park will be one).
