9/21:Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale is scheduled to go five innings or 75 pitches against the Indians on Friday. Sale is slowly getting stretched out after coming off a left shoulder injury. Even with less than a full workload on Friday, Sale is a fine starting option against a team that doesn't really have anything left to play for as far as playoff seeding in the American League.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
