Alex Cora on Chris Sale, who the Red Sox announced was admitted to the hospital due to a stomach illness: "I know they sent a memo or talked about it; actually I was walking into the batting cage and on the TV I saw the tweet by the organization. And he was feeling bad and he's at the hospital. From what I know, it's nothing serious, but obviously whenever you have to go to the hospital you gotta be, quote/unquote, worried. But he should be fine. Hopefully we get news in the upcoming hours and he'll join us in Houston."
