Red Sox say Chris Sale has stress reaction in shoulder blade - ESPN
Oft-injured Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale will be on the shelf for a lengthy spell again, with the team announcing Friday that he's been transferred to the 60-day injured list.
The Red Sox said Sale has a stress reaction in his shoulder blade, and while it won't require surgery, he won't throw for at least 3-4 weeks.

Sale was forced to leave a June 1 start against the Cincinnati Reds with the injury, then was placed on the 15-day IL a day later, a move he called at the time a "gut punch" considering his past injury woes. Additional tests revealed the stress reaction.
