Wade Boggs wonders if he had coronavirus, got it from Red Sox ace Chris Sale

TAMPA — Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs is wondering if had a bout with the coronavirus last month and, if so, whether he may have gotten it from Red Sox ace Chris Sale.

Boggs said Friday that he was so sick in early March that he had to go to a hospital near his Tampa home in the middle of the night, and was diagnosed at the time with pneumonia and sent home for a “really rough” recovery.

But now that symptoms of COVID-19 have become clearly identified, he is hoping soon to take an antibodies test to find out if he had the disease that has spread around the world.

“About the beginning of March I had pneumonia and just three days of high fever and cough and all that good stuff,” said Boggs, 61. “I went to the hospital and tested negative for flu, but I had pneumonia. I’m curious to find the antibody test and see if I actually did have (COVID-19). ... It was a rough, really rough few days.”

Coronavirus: Red Sox ace Chris Sale wonders if he might have had COVID-19

Injured Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale is not unlike so many around the world right now, looking back on the flu-like symptoms he had not so long ago and asking himself: Might I have had COVID-19?

Sale has more reason to wonder than most. Don’t forget, before the condition of his elbow again overshadowed all news about him, he began spring training workouts late because he suffered from what the Red Sox termed a mild case of pneumonia.

“Honestly, yes, no doubt,” Sale said when I asked on a conference call with reporters Tuesday whether he has wondered about it.

As medical experts throughout the world work to refine antibody tests for COVID-19, which would be particularly helpful for medical professionals working with patients who have contracted the virus, Sale at some point would make for an interesting candidate for one.

And the slow-moving story reaches its inevitable conclusion:

Chris Sale’s road back officially started Monday.

The Red Sox announced that the pitcher underwent Tommy John surgery in Los Angeles with Dr. Neal ElAttrache performing the surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Institute. Recovery. The Boston Globe was first to report the procedure had been executed.

News that Sale would need Tommy John surgery was surfaced March 19, with the team uncertain at the time regarding a timeline for the operation due to the complications regarding elective surgeries during the coronavirus crisis. Dr. James Andrews, for one, has suspended elective procedures according to the Globe.
