Clinching scenario: Chris Sale could use a rest

Neither case is ideal. Eight days is a long time between starts.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday night he hadn’t decided whether Chris Sale would pitch again in the regular season. If Sale did, it would be in the regular-season finale on Sunday. But that would mean he would face the Houston Astros, with a potential rematch four days later in Game 1 of the Divisional Series.

Of course, this all presumes that the Red Sox clinch the AL East.

If Sale doesn’t pitch, he’ll get eight days’ rest until he makes his first career playoff start.
