HOUSTON (AP) — was still feeling weak Wednesday and won’t start Game 5 of the AL Championship Series.Sale threw in the outfield for 10-15 minutes before Game 4 in Houston http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-jack-morris-jersey , but manager Alex Cora said the seven-time All-Star didn’t throw a bullpen as planned. David Price will start Thursday night on three days’ rest instead.Cora said Sale lost some weight because of a stomach illness that forced him to spend a night in the hospital after the lanky left-hander started the ALCS opener against the Astros.“He’s feeling better compared to yesterday, but physically he’s not there yet,” Cora said before Game 4. “So I think if necessary he’ll pitch Game 6. He feels that he’ll be ready for that one. And we’ll go from there.”With Price warming up in the bullpen in case he was needed in relief, the Red Sox held on for an 8-6 victory Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 6, if necessary, would be Saturday night in Boston.Dave Dombrowski, the team’s president of baseball operations, said Sale told him “he’s fine and he’ll be ready to go on Saturday.”Cora said there’s “no chance” Sale will pitch in any situation in Game 5.Price was the Game 2 starter Michael Fulmer Jersey , when he allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings and didn’t get a decision in Boston’s 7-5 victory that evened the series. Available out of the bullpen, the lefty was getting loose late Wednesday night but didn’t come into the game.“I think it’ll just make me a little bit more sharp for tomorrow. Might have found a new thing for me to do the day before I pitch,” Price said.“To have that opportunity to punch our ticket to the World Series is very cool,” he said.Sale did not speak to reporters Wednesday.Cora said earlier this week that Sale started feeling ill right after Game 1 and went to a hospital early Sunday morning.Sale was released Monday from Massachusetts General Hospital after remaining there overnight for observation. He rejoined the team Tuesday in Houston before Game 3.The club hasn’t specified Sale’s ailment or treatment, though Cora has said it was nothing serious.Sale struggled with his control in Boston’s 7-2 home loss to the Astros on Saturday night. He allowed two runs, four walks and hit a batter in four innings.The lefty made just one start between July 27 and Sept. 11 because of mild left shoulder inflammation, then made four starts during the rest of the regular season. He beat the Yankees in the Division Series opener and pitched one inning of relief in Game 4 as the Red Sox won the best-of-five series. Tom Szczerbowski/Getty ImagesToronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that he will allow catcher Russell Martin to manage the team in their season finale against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.According to John Lott of The Athletic, Gibbons said he wants to Leonys Martin Jersey , "Let [Martin] have fun with it."The Jays officially announced this week that Gibbons will be out as manager at the conclusion of the 2018 season.Toronto enters play Saturday with a disappointing 73-87 record, placing it fourth in the highly competitive AL East.The Blue Jays will miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season after reaching the American League Championship Series in both 2015 and 2016.Martin is set to close the worst statistical season of his career, as he is hitting just .194 with 10 home runs and 25 RBI.The 35-year-old veteran is a four-time All-Star, one-time Gold Glove award winner and one-time Silver Slugger award winner, but he is seemingly reaching the end of his career.Although the East York, Ontario, Canada, native has one year remaining on his contract with the Jays http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-wilson-jersey , he is nowhere close to living up to his $20 million salary.Over the past few years, several former players with little or no managerial experience have been hired as MLB managers, including Dave Roberts of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Craig Counsell of the Milwaukee Brewers.Sunday will mark Martin's first taste of managing, and if things go well, it isn't a stretch to think he could be managing on a full-time basis at the big-league level in the near future.If Martin retires at the end of the 2018 season, he may even establish himself as a candidate to take over for Gibbons in Toronto.
