Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Andrew Benintendi, Drew Pomeranz

It’s possible Chris Sale just lost the Cy Young Award. Plus Benintendi gets banged up and Pomeranz loses velocity.

Chris Sale may not have had his best game of the season last night, but there’s no reason to freak out. (Evan Drellich; CSNNE)

It is possible that the dud he threw yesterday could cost him the Cy Young Award as Cleveland’s Corey Kluber continues an excellent second half. (Scott Lauber; ESPN)

Even with the Cy Young on the line, the Red Sox would be smart to give Sale a break. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

The more pressing issue right now is the injuries befalling the Sox, especially after Andrew Benintendi fouled two pitches of his legs. (Jen McCaffrey; MassLive)

Disintegrating velocity is not something you want to see this time of year but its what’s happening to Drew Pomeranz. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Speaking of injuries, Dustin Pedroia should be playing every day in the playoffs. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Mookie Betts also appears to have a good outlook medically speaking. (Evan Drellich; CSNNE)

Mitch Moreland has been plenty healthy this season and done some good things in the process. (Owen Pence; Boston Globe)
