The prognosis regarding Chris Sale's injured elbow is still incomplete. The Red Sox are going to wait about a week and then figure things out from there.
First came the email from BetOnline.com ranking the favorites to win Rookie of the Year. Sitting atop the American League group? Michael Kopech. (For your betting pleasure, he is starting the season at 3-to-1.)
Kopech is, of course, one of the two centerpieces in the trade that brought Sale to the Red Sox. He missed all of the 2019 season with Tommy John surgery after turning in an impressive four-start big-league debut the year before. The righty certainly seems ready to pick up where he left off before the injury.
