Not Surprisingly, Sox Exercise 2019 Option On Ace Lefty Starter Chris Sale

The Red Sox today took the fully expected step of exercising their 2019 option on Chris Sale's contract. The lanky 29-year-old lefty was on the mound as The Carmine Hose closed out their historic 2018 season by winning the 114th World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers this past Sunday night. The announcement was made on Tuesday by President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski. Sale went 12-4 with a stellar 2.11 ERA in 2018, making his seventh All-Star appearance last summer—while all the while battling various injuries.
