Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale was caught on camera after being pulled from a minor league rehab game on Wednesday - and he didn't appear happy.
Just look at this footage from the runway between the dugout and the clubhouse:
Sale, who is recovering from a fractured rib cage, fought with his command for 3.2 innings for the Worcester Red Sox, the team's AAA club. While striking five, he also walked five, including a base-loaded walk in the third.

Despite the command issues, Sale stated he was "very ready" to return to the Premier League club.
The WooSox lost 4-2 to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders - AAA affiliate of rival New York Yankees.
Sale, who signed a five-year, $145 million contract extension with the Sox in 2019, did not receive a decision.
However, that wasn't Sale's biggest meltdown off the pitch. That came in 2016 when he was with the Chicago White Sox and didn't want to wear the team's retro uniforms. In response, Sale cut up the entire team's uniforms during batting practice. He was suspended for five games.
