Chris Sale moved from the Chicago White Sox to the Boston Red Sox six months ago and ever since then, he has managed to maintain a good performance. There is no doubt that Boston is enjoying his game and they will continue to do so until his contract expires. Sale has been a great influence and he has also dominated several games. His excellent control has proved that the trade was worth it and the team has no regrets.

Chris Sale's trade has brought some light to the team, but there is also talk that the Red Sox might regret trading Michael Kopech and Yoan Moncada.

Kopech has been a potential player as he was known for reaching up to 150 mph with his capable arm. Moncada is also extremely talented with his power, and both players are doing a fair job.

Chris Sale's trade could possibly result in regret

According to the Bleacher report, there is no doubt about it that Sale is doing an incredible job on the field and the trade has proved to be a huge success for the Red Sox. However, the team's rotation ranks only 12th in the Earned Run Average.

If there is no improvement, it is going to be a tough climb to the top.

On the other hand, the New York Yankees were coming back by rebuilding themselves. This was a good chance for the Red Sox to gain more power. The Yankees are now becoming a potential threat for the Red Sox, and surely they did not anticipate that fate would change things for them.

David Price's return

Brandon Workman is certainly a reliever who will make space for David Price.

When Price returns, he is going to be on the active roster and this is going to be a huge boost for the Red Sox. Price will be returning on Monday afternoon for the game in Chicago.

Workman has not appeared for a game since his previous call-up. In fact, he was one of those names to go down first. Price's return is definitely a good opportunity for him to start his season. The Red Sox have not made any huge sacrifice as such, Workman had his reasons to go down, and David Price has all the more reasons to get in.

Apparently, Price's left arm is valued for almost $217 million. The 31-year-old pitcher has more than 1,700 major league innings on his record. Price is capable of continuing for a long time, but he has been showing signs of mediocre results and reduced velocity.

The Red Sox have a good opportunity to get back in line with Chris Sale doing what he does best, there are chances that the climb could be easy. At the end of the day, it does not come down to one man, it is left up to the whole team to give it their best shot.
