Chris Sale doesn’t seem to be taking any chances when it comes to his new injury.
The Red Sox ace, who was put on the injured list with left elbow inflammation on Saturday, will head to Pensacola, Fla., on Monday with Sox trainer Brad Pearson to visit with Dr. James Andrews as he tries to obtain more information.
Sale has not addressed the media on the situation since Saturday’s news. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Saturday that the left-hander needed a couple of days to himself. Cora said Sale would be back Tuesday, when he should have more information on the severity of the injury and what the future holds for him.
“I actually just talked to him — he just wants to make sure he has all the facts before he talks to you guys (the media),” Cora said.” He wants to see where we’re at with it and all the opinions that he wants to get and he goes from there. It’s not that he’s hiding from you guys. He just wants to be straight up and have all the information when he talks to you guys, which I think is fair.”
Cora said there are no plans at this point for Sale to see any other doctors beyond Andrews, a renowned sports orthopedic surgeon who specializes in knee, elbow and shoulder injuries. Asked if he’s visiting with Andrews out of caution, Cora said, “That’s way over my head. … I know they’re going to Pensacola.”
