Red Sox have traded Chris Sale to Atlanta in a surprise deal

The Boston Red Sox have traded Seven-time All-Star Chris Sale to Atlanta.

The Boston Red Sox are sending the pitcher to the Braves as part of a trade to reunite with sought-after middle infield prospect Vaughn Grissom, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The Red Sox will reportedly give the Braves cash in addition to Sale, who waived his no-trade clause to go to Atlanta.

Sale, 34, spent the past seven years with the Red Sox.

I hope they gave the Atlanta Braves some bubble wrap.
