The seven-time All-Star has had multiple injuries over the past few seasons, including breaking a rib while working out on his own during the lockout. Last season, he went 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA in nine starts in his return from Tommy John surgery. He is currently in the third year of a five-year, $145 million deal. Sale is expected to be ready for the start of spring training in 2023. ​
