Sale was released from the hospital Monday.


Sale lasted just four innings during a 7-2 Game 1 loss to the Houston Astros. He struggled with his control, walking four batters during the loss.

Following Game 2, which the Red Sox won 7-5, manager Alex Cora said Sale’s illness was “nothing serious.”


Sale is scheduled to start Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday in Houston.
