McAdam: Additional opinion sought as Red Sox wait and see with Chris Sale

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The waiting continued Wednesday, with the Red Sox not releasing any more information about Chris Sale, who's ailing left elbow remains shrouded in mystery.

Sale, who complained of soreness in the elbow Monday, following a 15-pitch live batting practice session a day earlier, has had an MRI examined by both the Red Sox medical staff and Dr. James Andrews, is now waiting on another opinion from Los Angeles-based orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

"We want to make sure that we get everybody's opinion on this,'' said manager Ron Roenicke. "We need to get this right. He's a very important player and we want to do things the right way. Dr. Andrews did see it and read (the MRI). I don't want to comment on what he said until we find out from one more opinion on what they think. Once Chris gets all the information, he will let you guys know and we'll tell you more on his end, what he's thinking.

"Don't read into this that this is the worst-case scenario and that's why we're getting these opinions. We want to make sure we're right in what we do and get as many as we can get.''
