Sale (elbow) to throw off mound later this monthJanuary 12, 2021 | 05:10 PM
Chris Sale (elbow) will indeed begin throwing off a mound later this month.
Analysis: Sale's agent, B. B. Abbott, said as much last month during the virtual Winter Meetings, and it appears that the 31-year-old left-hander remains on the right track in his ongoing rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery. He should be able to return to the Red Sox rotation sometime in May if everything continues to go smoothly.
