Boston Red Sox activates Hirokazu Sawamura, hope Chris Sale can return this weekend

Cora said Sale is trying to stay as active as possible so that once he is cleared to return, he can rejoin the rotation. Boston optioned lefty Stephen Gonsalves and righty Brad Peacock to Triple-A Worcester to clear roster spots for Sawamura and Davis. “I do believe he has a huge patio at the house, so I bet he’s either throwing rocks to the trees or throwing baseballs to a net,” Cora said. “I believe he’ll find a way to keep his arm sound, and he’ll be ready whenever.”

In his first season in the majors, Sawamura has become a key member of Boston’s bullpen. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 3.09 ERA working primarily as a seventh- or eighth-inning option for Cora. Sawamura hasn’t pitched since Aug. 28 against the Cleveland Indians. The Red Sox have nine players on the COVID-19 injured list.

Going into Monday’s game against the Mariners, Davis had a 4.61 ERA in his time with the Red Sox, and he gave up no hits while recording a strikeout in one-third of an inning in Boston’s 5-4 loss to Seattle. He has appeared in 15 games for Boston since being acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Sale is on the COVID-19 injured list, but Cora said he has shown no symptoms. Sale tested positive late last week and was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday.
