Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale underwent Tommy John surgery, the MLB franchise announced on Monday.
The Red Sox deemed the elbow procedure – performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles – a success.
Sale will miss the entire 2020 season, which has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and a best-case scenario would have the World Series winner back in June 2021.
A seven-time All-Star, Sale has struggled with injuries in recent seasons – the 31-year-old hurt his left elbow late last season.
In 25 appearances in 2019, Sale tallied 218 strikeouts and six wins.
Sale has 2,007 strikeouts in 312 career games since making his debut with the Chicago White Sox in 2010.
