Fantasy baseball: What to do with Chris Sale

Boston Red Sox lefty Chris Sale earned the final out of the 2018 World Series and was one of the most coveted fantasy options this season, but his 2019 campaign has been a frustrating one. It might get a whole lot worse after noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews gets a better look at Sale's sore left elbow. Nothing is official yet, but the worry is that Sale's damaged elbow will necessitate ligament replacement (Tommy John) surgery, and that would mean one of the most valuable fantasy options misses not only the final weeks of 2019 but all of next season.
