The Red Sox are playing it safe with Chris Sale.

The Sox ace will not pitch Wednesday in Toronto as the team originally planned, giving Sale more time to heal his sore left shoulder.

For a second straight time through the rotation, Brian Johnson will take Sale's spot.

Drew Pomeranz is slated to start the series opener against the Blue Jays, with Rick Porcello slotted in for Thursday's tilt at Rogers Centre.
