David Price still needs to regain strength in his injured left elbow before resuming a full throwing program.
However, it's possible he could be cleared within the next few days. Price has been limited to this point to some light flat-ground throwing, range of motion and plyometric exercises. The Red Sox don't have a timetable for the left-hander's return, and manager John Farrell cautioned that the club will be very careful. "You don’t attach yourself to a calendar," Farrell said.

David Price (elbow) will visit the Red Sox team orthopedist on Tuesday to test his strength and determine the next step in his rehab.

The exam had initially been scheduled for Monday. Price could be cleared to increase the intensity of his throwing workouts if all goes well during the visit. The left-hander will begin the season on the disabled list, but it might not be an extended absence.

David Price (elbow) has a checkup with a team doctor on Monday.

If his left elbow looks good, Price could be cleared to increase the intensity level of his throwing workouts. Then the Red Sox can begin mapping out a timetable for his 2017 debut. Price will open the regular season on the 15-day disabled list, but the hope is this won't be too long of an absence.
Mar 20 - 11:04 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that David Price (elbow) will probably play catch from a distance of 60 feet on Thursday.

Farrell confirmed the obvious on Tuesday when he said that Price will begin the season on the disabled list, but the southpaw is at least doing some light throwing. The real test will be throwing with more intensity and eventually throwing off a mound. It's unclear when that will happen.
Mar 15 - 12:23 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged Tuesday that David Price (elbow) will begin the season on the disabled list.

It's not a surprise. Price has progressed to playing light catch on flat ground from 60 feet, which is good news, but he's still a ways off from pitching in games again. There are still some hurdles to cross, but there's a chance he could be back a lot sooner than originally expected if he can avoid setbacks. With Price out of the mix, Drew Pomeranz, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Steven Wright all figure to begin the year in the rotation.
Mar 14 - 9:52 AM

David Price (elbow) made 25 throws into a net in a batting cage again on Sunday.

He could do it for a third straight day Monday unless trainers decide he should rest instead. Price looks to be a tad ahead of schedule as he works his way back from an elbow injury, but obviously he still has a long ways to go. He will begin the season on the disabled list.
Mar 12 - 11:26 AM

David Price (elbow) threw 25 pitches in the batting cages on Saturday.

He was only expected to go through exercises on Saturday and not actually throw, so this puts him ahead of schedule in his recovery. While there were reports of doom and gloom when his injury was first announced, Price seems to be making positive strides and could be looking at only a short stint on the disabled list to begin the season.
Mar 11 - 10:14 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that David Price was examined Friday and the left-hander has full range of motion in his elbow.

Price won't resume throwing on Friday or Saturday as hoped, but he will go through plyometric exercises Saturday and will begin throwing lightly at some point in the next few days. It's positive news for the left-hander after he received good news earlier this week on his injured pitching arm. Price is going to need to start the season on the disabled list, but he might not miss much time if his rehab goes well.
Mar 10 - 3:51 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the club will allow David Price (elbow) to at least attempt or decide to throw on Friday or Saturday.

Potentially encouraging news. Price gave the Red Sox a major scare last week when he came down with considerable soreness in his elbow, but surgery wasn't deemed necessary and he didn't even need a platelet-rich plasma injection. The southpaw continues to feel better, but the real test will be ramping up throwing again. He remains a major question mark going into the season.
Mar 8 - 11:59 AM

David Price (elbow) will be shut down for 7-10 days but does not need surgery after receiving a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Price didn't even receive a platelet-rich plasma injection, as he was simply prescribed a bit of rest. Red Sox manager John Farrell referred to the news regarding his left-hander as the "best-case scenario" after it looked like Price might have a serious elbow injury. Price certainly isn't out of the woods yet, as he's still very much a question mark for Opening Day. Still, this is terrific news for Boston.
Mar 3 - 4:26 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the results of David Price's MRI were "inconclusive."

Price went for an MRI after feeling soreness in his left elbow, though he claims to be feeling better than he did 24 hours ago. The Red Sox are optimistic it isn't serious but Price is still going for a second opinion. He's scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Neal ElAttrache Friday afternoon at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Price was hoping to make his spring debut Sunday against Atlanta but that's obviously off the table.
Mar 2 - 4:43 PM

David Price underwent an MRI after experiencing considerable soreness in his left elbow on Wednesday.

Price has been scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League debut on Sunday and Red Sox manager John Farrell admitted that there is real concern among the club's medical staff. The high-priced left-hander will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews at the NFL Combine before anything is announced officially. None of this sounds good.
Mar 2 - 9:48 AM

David Price will make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday.

Price tested himself in a simulated game on Tuesday, throwing 39 pitchers while facing nine batters. The $217 million man will look for improvement after posting a 3.99 ERA over 35 starts during his first season in Boston.
Feb 28 - 12:01 PM

David Price was hammered for five runs on six hits over just 3 2/3 innings in a losing effort against the Indians in Game 2 of the ALDS on Friday.

Price also issued a pair of walks while striking out three on the afternoon. Most of the damage came during a four-run uprising in the second inning, highlighted by a three-run blast off the bat of left-handed hitting Lonnie Chisenhall. The Red Sox certainly didn't anticipate heading back home in an 0-2 hole after rolling out Rick Porcello and Price in the first two games against the Tribe, but that's precisely the place they find themselves in now.

Red Sox manager John Farrell declined to name his starting pitching for a potential fifth game in the ALDS.

Rick Porcello and David Price are both in play, here, but Farrell has yet to settle on which one would take the ball if the series with the Indians reaches Game 5. Porcello is set to start Game 1 of the ALDS, opposed by Trevor Bauer, while Price is ticketed for a Game 2 showdown with Corey Kluber.
