Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale suffers fractured left pinkie on comebacker

The Red Sox lefty Chris Sale only needed to glance at his finger for all the information he needed

He suffered a broken pinkie finger on his pitching hand due to a line drive

Continuing his injury-plagued season, the Boston ace faces an uncertain future

Sale was struck by Aaron Hicks' 106.7 mph liner in the first inning at Yankee Stadium

An RBI single gave New York a 3-0 lead when the ball deflected into right field

As soon as I saw this finger, I knew it was broken," Sale said

"It was like cold water just coursing through my body as soon as I hit the ground. As soon as I looked down, the finger was gone"

In a game Boston lost 13-2 before the All-Star break, he was injured
