CHICAGO (AP) — Boston Red Sox starting pitchers Chris

Sale and David Price could return to the rotation as early as next weekend , manager Alex Cora said Sunday before the team played the Chicago White Sox.For both left-handers, the Red Sox are looking at their next homestand, which begins Friday with three games against Houston before three games against Toronto and a three-game set against the Mets.Sale, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 15 for mild inflammation in his left shoulder Blake Treinen Jersey , could pitch a few innings as an “opener” as he builds up innings, Cora said. Sale is 12-4 with a 1.97 ERA that leads the AL.“It’s going to be during the homestand, but we don’t know which series,” Cora said of Sale. “We’re very positive he should be on the mound soon.”Price Chris Hatcher Jersey , who has a bruised left wrist, is 14-6 with a 3.60 ERA. The Red Sox hope Price also will be able to throw off a mound this week in Atlanta as he works his way back. A line drive struck his pitching wrist against Miami on Wednesday.“It should be Houston or the next series,” Cora said. “We’re not worried. He’s in good spirits. He should be fine.” Mike Ehrmann/Getty ImagesNew York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is expected to be activated off the disabled list when rosters expand Saturday, manager Aaron Boone told reporters.Sanchez has been out since reaggravating a groin injury against the Tampa Bay Rays on July 23. It was just his third game back after nearly a month on the DL due to the initial injury.Sanchez was criticized during his last appearance with the Yankees for not hustling after apassed ballor running out agame-ending ground ball. He refused to blame his injury , though."An injury is never an excuse," Sancheztold reporters. "When I'm on the field, I'm good to play. I could have done a better job."Sanchez began a rehab assignment Saturday and has gone 3-for-15 with two home runs, two RBI and three runs scored in four games. He has made two appearances at designated hitter and two at catcher.This season has not been the easiest for Sanchez. Not only has he missed two months due to injury Boog Powell Jersey , but he has also struggled on the field when he has played. One year after making his first All-Star team,the 25-year-oldis hitting .188/.283/.416 with 14 home runs, 14 doubles and 42 RBI in 66 games.New York has gone 21-14 during his latest trip to the disabled list. The Yankees (84-49) are 7.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East but hold a 10-game lead in the wild-card race. That gives them enough cushion to allow Sanchez to try to get right at the plate.Rosters expand Sept. 1, so the club can activate Sanchez before Saturday's game against the Detroit Tigers without having to make a corresponding roster move.
