Red Sox starter Chris Sale tests positive for COVID-19, will miss Sunday’s start

Red Sox ace Chris Sale the latest to test positive for COVID-19.

The Red Sox can’t get past the COVID-19 issues plaguing their clubhouse. Chris Sale is the latest Red Sox player to test positive for the virus and will miss Sunday’s start.

Sale has been a huge bright spot for the Sox since returning from the injured list. In five starts with the club, the left-handed hurler is 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.

Chris Sale is the 12th member of the Red Sox to test positive

Sale is now the 12th Red Sox player to test positive for the virus. Furthermore the lefty is the 10th player to land on the COVID-19 injured list since Aug. 27th.

Sale revealed earlier this season that he tested positive for COVID-19 in January and had a mild case.

Prior to the Sale announcement, Nick Pivetta was the last player to land on the COVID-19 related injured list.

It’s currently unknown who’ll take Sale’s spot in the rotation. The Sox haven’t announced a starter for Saturday’s game against the White Sox. Speculation is that Connor Seabold will start this weekend for Pivetta. Kutter Crawford could make another start for the Red Sox this weekend.
