Chaim Bloom sheds more light on Chris Sale’s bizarre injury

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale only returned to the majors in July after suffering an injury. Now he’s out with another for the rest of the season.

That Boston Red Sox had an unpredictable season with their bullpen and starting rotation becoming even more unpredictable. Veteran pitcher Chris Sale only returned to the majors in July after recovering from one finger injuryand now he faces another one keeping him out for the rest of the season.

Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom provided more insight into Sale’s injury. He stated that Sale was riding his bike to lunch, hit something while riding down a hill, and fell off his bike.

“You couldn’t have made that up… We’re relieved it wasn’t worse… It was such an unlucky streak for him and for us,” Bloom said of the unexpected turn of events.

According to Boston Globe’s Alex Speier, Sale pitched at Boston College because Fenway Park was hosting concerts. For those interested, the bike accident didn’t happen due to moving to Boston College — Sale was home from his throwing session when he decided to bike to pick up lunch.

Chris Sale has not played consistently for the Red Sox since 2019

Sale is no stranger to injuries. MLB insider Jeff Passan opened up about some of his recent injuries and how they impacted his career.

He started in August 2019 with elbow problems, which led to a Tommy John operation that knocked him out entirely in 2020. In 2021 he only had nine starts. Now, after just two games in the majors, he will end the 2022 season early.

Before his journey with injuries, he was an incredible pitcher. In 2018, he produced a 2.11 ERA, a .181 batting average, and a .86 WHIP. In 2019 his performance deteriorated significantly and he produced an ERA of 4.40, BAA of 0.221 and WHIP of 1.09.

Sale is said to be ready to start spring training in 2023, according to a tweet posted by the Red Sox organization.

Sale has had a difficult journey in recent years but hopefully he can return to his highest potential next season. Chaim Bloom sheds more light on Chris Sale’s bizarre injury
