At Yankee Stadium on Sunday, Sale quickly left the field while blemished a mangled pinkie finger.
When star left-hander Chris Sale was forced to leave his start against the New York Yankees on Sunday due to a fractured finger, the Boston Red Sox suffered a significant setback in their eventual 13-2 loss. Chris Sale was hurt his little finger that forced him to leave the game. The Red Sox eventually described the damage as a pinkie fracture, or the fifth finger on the left hand.
Sale informed reporters after the game, including the Boston Globe, that he anticipates being out for 4-6 weeks. To get a more precise idea of how long it will take him to recuperate, he will consult a hand expert either later on Sunday or on Monday.
