Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale visited with specialist Dr. James Andrews on August 19, with plans to see him again some six weeks later.

As it happens, today was the exact six-week anniversary of that visit. That follow--up visit hasn't happened yet, and Sale remains in "no throw'' mode on orders from Dr. Andrews, after complaining of elbow discomfort and being shut down for the remainder of the season after Aug. 13.

Nevertheless, the Red Sox expressed optimism about Sale's condition and his readiness for next season.
