BOSTON (AP) Red Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with left elbow inflammation, raising questions about whether he will pitch again this season.

Team president Dave Dombrowski said Sale had an MRI and the team's doctors said the results showed inflammation.

"There's going to be further evaluations," Dombrowski said before Boston faced the Baltimore Orioles. "We're in a situation where I don't know where it's really going to take us at this point."
