Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale is on the road to recovery from surgery on his left elbow last week, but he's not certain how to attack rehab in a world on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. "I don't know if there's going to be a safe way to get in there and do my rehab," Sale said Tuesday of working at the team's spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla. "But worst case, I can do it at my house. I've been provided some different things for working out and rehabbing obviously my elbow.

"The first couple of weeks is light stuff, anyways, basically working on flexion and extension. I try to do most of that over FaceTime and kind of doing stuff from my house." Sale said he's "feeling good" but also wonders if his February bout with pneumonia was actually coronavirus. He hopes to be tested.

For now, the seven-time All-Star is planning to take baby steps at the direction of the Red Sox. He's ready to make rehab his full-time job. At 31, Sale has already said publicly he expects doubts about his ability to return to top form. "I can focus 100 percent of my time and effort on this to come back as good as I can. I owe that to my team, my teammates and to the fans," Sale said. "I'm sitting out a year, and the team put its faith in me to pitch at the highest level for five more years. And at best, I'm only going to give them four.

"For me, I take a lot of pride in what I do and don't take it lightly. I have a chip on my shoulder. I guess I have one in my elbow, too."
