Red Sox ace Chris Sale admitted to hospital with stomach ailment

As the Boston Red Sox were taking on the Houston Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS, the club announced that ace Chris Sale was admitted to the hospital.

Assuming this is fairly minor ailment, this shouldn’t make much of a difference on the field. Having thrown on Saturday, Sale was unlikely to be available until Thursday’s Game 5 or Wednesday’s Game 4 at the absolute earliest.

If the issue goes beyond that, it becomes a big issue for both Sale and his team.

Sale took a no-decision on Saturday. He allowed only one hit and struck out five, but walked four and was limited to only four innings as the Red Sox were defeated 7-2.
