FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale will start the season on the injured list, manager Ron Roenicke said Thursday.

Sale, who reported to camp with pneumonia and is behind schedule, will be placed on the 15-day injured list and will remain in Fort Myers for extended spring training when the team breaks camp.

“With the sickness, it cost him two weeks’ time and that two weeks is what we’d like to give him to make sure that he’s right,” Roenicke said. “He’s worked hard on getting his arm right and we didn’t think four starts in spring training was fair to him."
