The Boston Red Sox are holding strong in the AL East title race as June gets underway. They have one of the best records in the American League at 32-32, impressively getting to this point so far without ace Chris Sale, who's working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

And it sounds like Sale continues to make progress in his injury rehab.

Chris Sale Injury Update

Sale participated in a bullpen session on Wednesday, throwing 20 pitches at the team's training facility in Fort Myers. He worked in fastballs, changeups and even sliders during his bullpen work, which is an encouraging sign.

"He said the first slider, he threw against the backstop. The second one almost killed somebody. The third one was a good one. He’s making progress."

Sale still has a ways to go before facing live hitters, but it's exciting to hear about his recovery being on track.
