David Price pitched well for seven innings but stumbled in the eighth, allowing nine hits and four runs over 7 2/3 innings in a loss to the A's on Sunday.
Price largely cruised through seven but ran into trouble in the eighth when the A's picked up back-to-back one-out singles. He retired the red-hot Jed Lowrie for the second out but couldn't get past Khris Davis, whose three-run homer closed the book on Price and saddled him with his second loss. Even with the poor ending, Price now has a 2.93 ERA through five starts and seems to be past the elbow issue that plagued him last year. Price will next take on his former Rays club Saturday in Boston. Apr 22 - 7:54 PM

David Price (hand) made his road start Tuesday against the Angels and he allowed just one run, three hits and four walks with six strikeouts in the win.

Price left his last start due to numbness in his hand, and he was limited to 78 pitches in this one. He struck around long enough to qualify for the victory, and with the scoreboard reading 9-1, manager Alex Cora played it safe and lifted the southpaw rather than risk any kind of a setback or injury. Price will next toe the slab on Sunday afternoon in Oakland.

David Price (hand) will start Tuesday against the Angels.

Price was pulled from Wednesday's start after feeling numbness in his hand but resumed throwing on Thursday and never needed an MRI. He'll get an extra day of rest with Brian Johnson filling in against Baltimore on Patriot's Day. Even after Wednesday's shellacking, Price still sports an excellent 2.40 ERA for the year.
Apr 12 - 11:24 PM

Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed there's a "chance" David Price (hand) will make his scheduled start Monday against the Orioles.

Price bowed out after just one inning on Wednesday night due to numbness in his left hand, but resumed throwing on Thursday and didn't show any ill effects. The left-hander suffered a similar injury while playing for Detroit a few years ago and didn't miss a start. Consider the former Cy Young winner day-to-day.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters that David Price's hand was "fine" after Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Cora said Price will attempt to play catch Thursday and that there are no further tests scheduled. Most importantly, Cora mentioned that the early removal wasn't related to the elbow problems that plagued Price during the 2017 season. The southpaw left his start against the Yankees after completing just one inning due to what he called "sensations" in his hand. For now he should be considered day-to-day.

David Price left his start on Wednesday against the Yankees after feeling "sensations" in his left hand.

The exit was deemed precautionary, but Price will undergo further tests to make sure there's no damage to his hand. The southpaw struggled in his one inning against the Yankees, needing 35 pitches to get through the frame while allowing four runs. His status for his next scheduled start against the Orioles on Monday should be considered questionable.
Apr 11 - 8:12 PM

David Price left his start against the Yankees on Wednesday after just one inning with an apparent injury.

Price gave up four runs in the first, and then appeared to be looking at his left hand after walking off the mound. Bobby Poyner took over for Price in relief. The Red Sox should provide an update on his status shortly.
Apr 11 - 7:53 PM

David Price surrendered just three hits over seven shutout frames Thursday in the Red Sox’s extra-innings win over the Rays.

He struck out seven and walked three while throwing 56 of his 91 pitches for strikes. The Rays never posed any real threat to Price, who looked locked in from the very start. Unfortunately Price didn’t get any run support, at least not while he was in the game. For all the criticism Price has received since joining the Red Sox, the former Cy Young hasn’t allowed a run since July 22 of last year. After facing the Rays twice in a row, the left-hander will draw the Yankees next week at Fenway Park.
Apr 5 - 6:38 PM

David Price was brilliant in his season debut Friday against the Rays, allowing four hits and no walks over seven scoreless frames as part of a 1-0 victory.

The game was scoreless until Rafael Devers singled home a run in the seventh, so Price walked away with the victory. The southpaw fanned five batters and made quick work out of the Rays’ offense by throwing 55 out of his 76 pitches for strikes. According to Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald, this is the second time in Price's career that he’s made a scoreless start on fewer than 80 pitches. Price was limited to just 74 2/3 innings last season due to elbow issues, but there’s every reason to think he’ll be very good if he’ll stay healthy. His ADP (average draft position) in fantasy leagues could end up looking like a steal.
Mar 30 - 10:39 PM

David Price worked three innings of one-run ball in his final Grapefruit League outing Sunday versus the Twins.

That one run came on a Brian Dozier solo homer in the bottom of the first inning. It was the only hit Price allowed in his mostly-effective final tuneup. The 32-year-old left-hander has looked healthy this spring and should be climbing up draft lists. He'll start Boston's second regular-season game against the Rays.
Mar 25 - 3:09 PM

David Price held the Pirates to two runs and three hits over five innings in a win Tuesday.

Price struck out four and walked one in his second start of the spring. He's been effective both times out, and with no elbow setbacks, he should be climbing up draft lists.
Mar 20 - 4:24 PM

David Price allowed one hit over four scoreless innings and struck out five as the Red Sox bested the Blue Jays 7-5 on Thursday.

It was the first official outing of the spring for Price, who had his previous start pushed to a minor league game because rain was in the forecast. His stuff has looked sharp since the beginning of camp and he hasn't had any further problems with his elbow. He could end up providing great value for someone who isn't typically one of the first 20-25 SPs off the board right now.
Mar 15 - 5:58 PM

Due to rain in the forecast, David Price will throw in a minor league game on Saturday instead of in Grapefruit League action against the Twins.

The Red Sox want to continue to take every possible precaution with Price this spring, so there's no need to throw him out there in possible inclement weather. He should be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of the regular season and makes for an intriguing bounceback candidate in fantasy leagues.
Mar 10 - 8:27 AM

David Price threw 39 pitches over three innings in a minor league game on Monday.

The Red Sox opted to have Price pitch in a controlled environment for his first outing of the spring. The southpaw allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out three, but the most important thing is that he felt good. Price was limited to 74 2/3 innings last season due to elbow issues, but there's huge bounceback potential if he can stay healthy.
Mar 5 - 12:50 PM

David Price said Tuesday that he feels healthy and isn't thinking about the opt-out in his contract.

Price appears determined for a rebound after being limited to 74 2/3 innings last season due to elbow issues. He also admitted Tuesday that he could have handled things better in regards to his interactions with the media. As far as the opt-out, he'd be passing over $127 million from 2019-2022. He'll be 33 years old in August and now has questions about the elbow, so it would probably take a pretty special year for it to be a real possibility. We're betting against it.
