Sale is "expected to be ready for the start of Spring Training in 2023," according to the Red Sox.


Chris Sale, the Red Sox pitcher, will miss the rest of the 2022 season after undergoing surgery for a fractured wrist sustained in a recent bicycling accident.


Sale "underwent an open reduction and internal repair of a right distal radius (wrist) fracture," according to the team's release on Tuesday.


Sale "suffered his injury during a cycling accident on Saturday, August 6," according to the organisation.


Sale has not pitched since leaving his July 17 start against the Yankees in the first inning after being hit in the left hand by a line ball. The next day, he had surgery on his left pinky to fix a fracture, and he was working toward a possible return before the season ended.


Sale, 33, will now miss the rest of the season after pitching just 48.1 innings since the end of the 2019 season due to injury.


Sale is "expected to be ready for the start of Spring Training in 2023," according to the Red Sox.
