Cloud over Red Sox clears a bit ahead of series vs. Phillies

The Boston Red Sox are riding the high of a five-game winning streak, and they potentially got some good news as they enter their two-game series against the visiting Philadelphia Philllies on Tuesday.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reported Monday afternoon that noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews examined ace lefthander Chris Sale's sore pitching elbow and confirmed the initial diagnosis of inflammation and all but ruled out the need for Tommy John surgery.

Sale was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday, but the reported lack of serious injury puts just the rest of the week -- not the rest of the season -- in flux when it comes to the pitching rotation.
