 on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday because of shoulder inflammation Paul Konerko Jersey , according to Chris Cotillo of news is a bit of a surprise after a dominant stretch on the mound, as ESPN StatsInfo noted:ESPN Stats amp; Info ESPNStatsInfoChris Sale in his past six starts: 39 IP, 1 ER, 67 KPer EliasSports, hes the only pitcher since the mound moved to its current distance in 1893 with 60 strikeouts and one or fewer runs allowed in a six-game span. MoJPIAhqN3Last year's American League Cy Young runner-up has stayed healthy throughout the season , producing an AL-best 2.04 ERA with an 11-4 record in 22 starts. He leads MLB with a 0.87 WHIP and 207 strikeouts.Sale's first season with the Red Sox in 2017 was a rousing success. The29-year-oldled all MLB starters with 214.1 innings pitched and a career-high 308 strikeouts.Losing Sale from the rotation is a significant blow to a Boston team with high hopes this season. The Red Sox still have good starting depth with David Price, Rick Porcello, Drew Pomeranz, Nathan Eovaldi and Steven Wright set to return from the DL in early August to round out their group of five. Eduardo Rodriguez is on the shelf with an ankle sprain and is on track to return at some point in September.Sale is a true difference-maker who has finished in the top six in AL Cy Young voting in each of the previous six seasons. His presence will be essential for the Red Sox to keep pace with the New York Yankees in the American League East. Mike Stobe/Getty ImagesIt sounds like the New York Yankees will have shortstop Didi Gregorius available for the playoffs.According to a report from Michael Kay of the Yes Network, doctors have cleared Gregorius for baseball activities despite the shortstop suffering a wrist injury:YES Network YESNetworkBREAKING: Didi Gregorius has been cleared to resume baseball activities Nellie Fox Jersey , per RealMichaelKay. j8lLVgHRj5Gregorius suffered a cartilage tear in his right wrist over the weekend, per Bryan Hoch of, though he underwent a cortisone shot. Per Kay's report, that shot seemed to do the trick for Gregorius.Gregorius was optimistic after receiving the shot."I feel way better," he said Monday , per Hoch. "It's a big improvement from yesterday to today. I'm feeling stronger. I'll get some exercises in and wait to see what's going to happen. ... I said the same thing yesterday; I said I'll be ready to go before the season ends."Yankees manager Aaron Boone was a bit more cautious withGregorius' timetable for a return on Monday."He felt significantly better obviously with some of the range of motion things he's able to do," Boone noted. "I would also temper it. The true indicator will come Wednesday when he's re-evaluated and we see how he does, and if we're able to start baseball activities from there, seeing how it takes when he gets a ball and a bat in his hand."Based on Kay's report, that re-evaluation went well.Getting Gregorius back will be a huge boost for the Yankees in the postseason. The shortstop is hitting .268 with 27 home runs Luke Appling Jersey , 86 RBI, 86 runs and 10 stolen bases this year, giving the Yankees another big bat for what is already a fearsome lineup. He's one of six players with 20 or more home runs this season.The Yankees could survive come October withoutGregorius. But they are markedly more dangerous with him available.
