Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale suffers fractured left pinkie on comebacker that hits hand

Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale suffered a fractured pinkie finger on his pitching hand when he was struck by a comebacker in the first inning Sunday against the New York Yankees.

With two outs, Aaron Hicks hit a 106.7 mph line drive off Sale’s left hand. The ball deflected into center field as Gleyber Torres scored to give New York a 3-0 lead.

Sale screamed out in pain, immediately came off the field holding up his injured hand and was replaced by Hirokazu Sawamura. The Red Sox announced later Sunday that Sale has a left fifth finger fracture.

Red Sox exec Chaim Bloom reacts to Chris Sale meltdown: ‘That’s who he is’

Chris Sale’s clubhouse outburst has caught everyone’s attention — including his boss’s.

In a radio appearance on WEEI 93.7 Thursday morning, Red Sox’s chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said that he saw Sale’s since-viral video. And while Bloom maintained that he does not condone property damage, he also reasoned that Sale is a “competitor.”

“That’s who he is,” said Bloom, who went on to compare Sale and former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz. “There are plenty of guys, including somebody we all love who is going into Cooperstown later this month, who has been caught on tape doing stuff like that when they’re frustrated during a ballgame. It happens, it probably happens more than people think and with guys that you might never suspect.

“So it’s never something that we condone, but there’s a lot of passion in this game and when you have someone who holds himself to as high a standard as Chris does and who cares as much as he does, sometimes that passion is going to express itself in different ways.”
