Red Sox fans can breathe a little easier.

Early Monday evening, the Red Sox announced Chris Sale has been released from Mass General Hospital after spending the night there Sunday with a stomach illness. He will rejoin the team in Houston on Tuesday.

Sale was admitted a day after a tough outing in Game 1 of the ALCS against the Astros. The left-hander allowed two runs on one hit in four innings of work, but walked four and hit a batter.

It's expected Sale will start Thursday's Game 5.
