“LHP Chris Sale reported a stomach illness today and was admitted to MGH for observation this afternoon. He will be kept overnight for evaluation and any further updates will be released when available,” the Red Sox official Twitter account informed its fans Sunday afternoon.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora assured the media that Sale’s condition is “nothing serious,” but they would be taking precautions nonetheless.

Sale is expected to make a full recovery. He likely won’t be expected to pitch again until Game 5 on Thursday.
