Chris Sale has been trying to look like his old ace in the middle of his rehab on a major league hill.

However, he may have gone too far and become a little boy.

“I acted like an idiot last night and I’ve acted like an idiot before,” Chris Sale told reporters on Thursday, per MassLive.com.

On Wednesday, video of the rehab Red Sox ace collapsing on the bench went viral. After struggling through a rehab start with Triple-A Worcester, the southpaw, 33, decided to vent his frustration at everything he saw in the dugout. He has been seen aggressively ripping things off the wall, knocking them over and dealing heavy punches.

Sale went in 3 2/3 innings with five batters in his fourth rehab start.

Sale, who has had tantrums on the mound and bench in the past, thought his last tantrum was in private. Although he took responsibility for his actions, he was not happy that it was recorded and available for viewing.

Since signing his five-year, $145 million contract extension in 2019, Sale has only pitched 42 2/3 innings with the Red Sox. Shortly after the extension, he missed the entire season In 2019 with an elbow infection and all of 2020 after undergoing surgery from Tommy John, he is currently recovering from a stress fracture to his right rib sustained while batting in February.

In his four starts in rehab this season, Sale has a 2.38 ERA and has hit 19 batters in 11 1/3 innings.
