Three months after administering a PRP injection into Sale’s elbow, Andrews gave Sale the green light to start throwing again according to Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom (per Rob Bradford of WEEI). Sale had his follow-up appointment with Andrews the week before Thanksgiving and aims to be a full participant in spring training.
Sox general manager Brian O’Halloran said earlier this month Sale’s follow-up with Andrews (originally scheduled for six weeks after the first appointment) was delayed once Boston fell out of the playoff race.
Sale’s final outing of the 2019 season came on Aug. 13 as he was shut down with left elbow inflammation.
