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.

Date:

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.
Oct 5 - 4:11 PM

David Price pitched five innings of one-run ball Sunday in his tuneup against the Blue Jays.

Price was expected to have a rather light pitch count today, and he was lifted after 80 pitches. He didn't factor into the decision, so he ended up 17-9 with a 3.99 ERA and 228 strikeouts in 230 innings. He's slated to start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Indians on Friday.
Oct 2 - 6:49 PM

According to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe, David Price will be "limited" in Sunday's regular season finale against the Blue Jays.

The Red Sox want to make sure he's rested for the playoffs next week. It looks like Price will start Friday in Game 2 of the ALDS against Cleveland. We're not sure exactly what "limited" means but Price will obviously be on a much lower pitch count than usual. It's something for fantasy owners to be aware of heading into the last day of the regular season.
Oct 1 - 5:29 PM

David Price served up three home runs and allowed six runs over 6 1/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Price has pitched well for the Red Sox this season after a slow start, but his introduction to the rivalry with the Yankees hasn't gone well. Over five starts versus the Bombers this season, he's put up a 7.89 ERA and 1.79 WHIP. The southpaw tied his season high by allowing 12 hits in this one. Price's final regular season start will come Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Sep 27 - 11:10 PM

David Price allowed three runs over seven innings in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Price gave up six hits, including a three-run homer to Trey Mancini that accounted for all three of the Orioles' runs, while striking out five and walking two on the night. Despite a 3.91 ERA, the win was the eighth in a row for Price to improve him to 17-8 through 33 starts overall. Price will look to make it nine in a row when he takes on the Yankees in Yankee Stadium on Wednesday.
Sep 23 - 12:01 AM

David Price was hit hard in Saturday's no-decision against the Yankees, allowing five runs on nine hits in his six frames.

He did help fantasy owners out at least by punching out seven on the afternoon without issuing a walk. The Yankees jumped on him with three runs in the third inning, including a two-run bomb off the bat of Gary Sanchez. Price now sports a disappointing 3.91 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column when he does battle against the Orioles in Baltimore on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 4:50 PM

David Price struck out nine while permitting only two hits and two runs over eight superb innings in Monday's 12-2 win over the Orioles.

Unfortunately for Price, both of the base knocks he allowed left the yard, as Chris Davis and Manny Machado took him deep. That was it, though, as he didn't walk anyone and needed just 98 pitches to cruise through his eight brilliant frames. Price hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his last six outings, dropping his ERA from 4.29 to 3.81 over that time. He'll carry a 16-8 record into this weekend's matchup against the Yankees at Fenway.
Sep 12 - 10:21 PM

David Price picked up his 15th win after holding the Padres to two runs in seven innings on Wednesday.

Price struck out eight and walked none. Price reached 200 strikeouts for the fifth time in six seasons. He's won six straight starts, amassing a 2.14 ERA during the span.
Sep 8 - 12:39 AM

David Price notched his 14th win with seven innings of two-run ball Friday against the A's.

This makes five straight quality starts and five straight victories for Price. He's lowered his ERA from 4.34 to 3.93 during the span. As odd as his season has been, he does seem to be peaking at the right time.
Sep 3 - 2:36 AM

David Price pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Royals, allowing two runs on five hits over six strong innings.

The veteran southpaw racked up seven strikeouts on the evening while issuing only two free passes. All of the damage against him came in the second inning which featured a solo homer from Salvador Perez and an RBI double from Alcides Escobar. Price earned his 13th victory of the season, but still sports a disappointing 3.97 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He'll do battle next against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday.
Aug 27 - 10:23 PM

David Price shut down his former team on Monday, twirling eight shutout innings while striking out eight in a 6-0 win over the Rays.

Price walked two batters and gave up only two hits, as the Rays never reached second base while he was in the game. He did need some help in his final inning, as Andrew Benintendi made an incredible two-run homer-robbing catch against Steven Souza. Price has surrendered only one run and six hits over his last 14 innings to drop his ERA to 4.00, which is the lowest it's been since Opening Day. He'll take on the Royals over the weekend.
Aug 22 - 11:01 PM

David Price was credited with a complete game after limiting the Orioles to one run in six innings in Boston's rain-shortened win Wednesday.

Price had a nice 8-1 cushion when the game was called. Still, he probably wasn't going nine tonight, regardless of the rain; he was at 84 pitches through six innings. Price has won back-to-back starts for the first time since May. He's 11-8 with a 4.19 ERA.
Aug 17 - 10:59 PM

David Price pitched well in Friday's victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on 10 hits over his eight innings of work.

The hard-throwing southpaw racked up eight strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one walk. The Red Sox offense staked him to eight early runs, so Price was simply on cruise-control the majority of the evening, throwing strikes and making sure the D'Backs didn't mount a major rally. Now 10-8 on the year, he'll bring a 4.30 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Tigers in Detroit.
Aug 12 - 10:06 PM

David Price struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering six runs (three earned) on six hits over his five innings.

Price had difficulty commanding his fastball, issuing five walks while striking out three in the contest. He kept the Dodgers off the board through the first three innings, but their offense awoke with three runs in the fourth including a solo shot from Justin Turner. They tacked on three unearned runs in the fifth inning, ending Price's night. He'll head into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks with a disappointing 4.34 ERA and 1.28 WHIP.
