Boston Red Sox star pitcher Chris Sale has run into more tough this year. 

The 33-year-old southpaw has undergone successful surgery on his right wrist, the team confirmed today.

The injury occurred during a bicycle accident over the weekend.

Unfortunately, Sale will miss the remainder of the season but the Red Sox expect him to be ready for spring training next year.

The news comes after Sale’s brief return from a stress fracture right rib injury he suffered earlier this year.

Sale has started just two games this season – only pitching 5.2 innings. 

In just his second start back, he sustained a fractured left pinky against the New York Yankees on July 17.

He was originally expected to return in September – but the new injury will keep him sidelined well beyond then. 

Despite the tough luck – fans were nevertheless relentless with reactions

One fan tweeted “I love Chris Sale, but I pray I never have his luck. Guy can’t catch a break…or maybe he’s caught too many “breaks.” I can’t tell which one.” 

Another said: “Worst contract extension in franchise history. 

And here are some memes posted by fans.


After this season, Sale has two more years left on his deal.

He is set to make $27.5 million each in 2023 and 2024.

The Red Sox sit 4.5 games out of a wild card spot.
