2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 2019 season did not end well for Sale as he showed a drop in velocity and for the second consecutive season, failed to avoid the injured list. He reported to camp in February and by mid-March, he was on the table having Tommy John surgery. Mind you, this all happened in the first year of his new five-year, $145 million contract extension. Management has already said they do not expect Sale back on the active roster until "mid-summer." Ignore what Sale says, because management has 145 million reasons to handle his comeback with care. Unless you are drafting in a keeper league, his value on draft day should be considered negligible given the statistical track record of pitchers pitching the season following TJS. Even mid-summer is still just 15 months out for him, and command is always the last thing that comes back for a pitcher. Read Past Outlooks
