He had surgery but no return date has been set. A broken bone usually takes 4-6 weeks to heal, so it is possible Sale could pitch again before the end of the season.
Analysis: Sale was making his second start since returning from a fractured rib Tuesday in Tampa. Sale, who is signed through 2024 in a five-year, $145 million deal, has thrown just 48 1/3 innings for the Red Sox since the end of the 2019 season. Last season, he went 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA in nine starts in his return from Tommy John surgery.

Analysis: Sale has thrown just 42 2/3 innings for the Red Sox since the end of the 2019 season. He missed all of 2020 recovering from Tommy John surgery, then went 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA in nine starts last year.
