Analysis: Sale was projected to begin throwing in early April, but an MRI in late March revealed he needed more time to recover. It's been an injury plagued last few seasons for Sale, who made just nine starts in 2021 after missing all of 2020 after undergoing left elbow surgery. The veteran lefty was solid, however, when he did pitch last season, going 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 42 2/3 innings.
