David Price threw two shutout innings of relief in a loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Price didn't allow a baserunner, and he struck out two. It's a strong first relief appearance for the left-hander, especially considering he hadn't pitched in a game since July 22. We've seen what his stuff can do out of the bullpen in relief before, and assuming he can stay healthy, he could be a major weapon out of the Boston bullpen for the postseason.
Sep 17 - 4:28 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed Thursday morning that David Price will work out of the bullpen for the remainder of 2017.

It's something that has been hinted at over the last couple of weeks as Price began throwing shorter simulated games in his recovery from another left elbow issue. He tossed 47 pitches off the mound on Wednesday, so the Red Sox probably won't have him make his bullpen debut until Sunday or Monday. The hope is he can operate as an effective multi-inning reliever. This role obviously kills any fantasy value he might have carried down the stretch.
Sep 14 - 11:15 AM

Red Sox activated LHP David Price from the 10-day disabled list.

There's nothing set in stone yet, but it sounds like Price is going to finish out the year as a multi-inning reliever for the Red Sox. He's made just 11 starts this season, covering just 66 innings, because of left elbow troubles. Red Sox manager John Farrell should address Price's exact role before Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Athletics.
Sep 14 - 10:54 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that management will sit down with David Price to determine his role for the remainder of the season.

Farrell also said that it would be "aggressive" to bring Price back as a starter. It's just a hypothesis, but it sounds like Price will be joining the Red Sox bullpen for the remainder of the year. Considering the long-term investment in his left arm, it makes sense. Price threw a three-inning, 47-pitch simulated game on Wednesday afternoon and could be ready for activation by early next week.

David Price (elbow) threw a successful three-inning simulated game on Wednesday.

Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe says Price spotted his fastball and breaking pitches for strikes throughout the 47-pitch workout. The left-hander could soon be activated off the disabled list, though there's been some chatter about him working out of the bullpen for the Red Sox down the stretch. Look for something more official on Price's status and role by this weekend.
Sep 13 - 3:53 PM

David Price (elbow) will throw a three-inning simulated game Wednesday.

It's possible, but not certain, that he'll be activated after that. Red Sox manager John Farrell noted Sunday that Price's role once he returns isn't set in stone, as they might decide to use him out of the bullpen since he's not built up yet and has been out since late July. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on much here.
Sep 10 - 11:34 AM

David Price (elbow) threw two 16-pitch simulated innings on Saturday afternoon.

Price will throw another, lengthier simulated game in 4-5 days and then the Red Sox will discuss a plan for inserting him back onto the active roster. It sounds like he may fit in a couple of starts before the end of the regular season, though nothing is set in stone as of this moment. There is some chatter about him possibly working out of the bullpen.

Sep 9 - 4:36 PM

David Price (elbow) threw a 30-pitch side session on Wednesday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that at least according to the eye test, the veteran southpaw's velocity was right where it needed to be. Price is scheduled to throw two simulated innings on Saturday as he continues to close in on a return to the big league club. Expect him to work in at least a few simulated games before he is activated from the disabled list. Price has been out of action with elbow discomfort since late July.
Sep 6 - 5:24 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that David Price (elbow) was "impressive" in a 29-pitch, fastballs-only bullpen session Friday.

The left-hander is slated for another bullpen session Sunday or Monday and will incorporate breaking ball then. Price will probably need a simulated game or two before being an option to rejoin the rotation, as the minor league season ends in a few days.

Sep 1 - 5:43 PM

David Price said his elbow responded well to Wednesday's bullpen session, and he's planning to throw again on Friday.

Price threw 20 pitches without incident yesterday. He might throw a few more and mix in changeups tomorrow.
Aug 31 - 5:21 PM

David Price (elbow) threw off the mound on Wednesday.

Price threw 20 pitches, all fastballs. This was the first time he has thrown off the mound since he made his last start (July 22) before landing on the disabled list with elbow discomfort. While there is no concrete timetable for the southpaw's return, there is still a chance that he manages to make it back to the Red Sox before the end of the regular season.
Aug 30 - 5:25 PM

David Price (elbow) is scheduled to throw off a mound Wednesday.

It'll be his first mound workout since he landed back on the disabled list in late July with renewed elbow discomfort. Price could potentially return to the Red Sox before the end of the regular season if his rehab goes well from here, but there are still many hurdles to clear. He's sitting on a 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 63/22 K/BB ratio through just 66 innings this season.
Aug 29 - 5:21 PM

David Price (elbow) will throw from 120 feet on Friday.

Price was shut down for a stretch last week but resumed throwing a few days ago. The left-hander still has a ways to go before he's ready to rejoin the Red Sox starting rotation. A mid-September return would be the best-case scenario.
Aug 24 - 5:44 PM

David Price (elbow) extended his throwing to 90 feet on Tuesday.

It's a nice step in the right direction for Price, who made it through a 60-foot throwing session Monday without issue. He's slated to play catch again on Wednesday, though there's no specific timetable for his return to the Red Sox rotation at this juncture. It probably won't happen before mid-to-late September.
