David Price was dominant in a relief effort on Sunday, firing four shutout innings in a critical victory over the Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Price struck out four and walked one in the game. He came on in the fourth with the Red Sox leading 4-3 and shut down the Astros for four straight innings at a critical time in the Red Sox' season. He has been an unbelievable weapon to have in the bullpen thus far. Sun, Oct 8, 2017 06:20:00 PM

David Price tossed 2 2/3 scoreless relief innings in Friday's loss to the Astros.

Drew Pomeranz lasted only two-plus innings and Carson Smith followed him by walking two of the three batters he faced. Price stemmed the tide after that, yielding only a bloop double and an intentional walk over his 2 2/3 scoreless frames, but by then it was pretty much too late. Since returning from the disabled list last month, Price has a 0.00 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 15/3 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings.

David Price is unavailable out of the bullpen for Saturday's game against the Astros.

The Red Sox are still monitoring his workload and don't want to push him on back-to-back games.

David Price was excellent out of the pen again Wednesday, striking out three of the four batters he faced against the Blue Jays.

The other grounded out. It was Price's shortest outing to date, as he pitched two and 2 2/3 innings in his previous two relief appearances. The Red Sox will probably try to bring him back on shorter rest now to get him ready for his postseason role.

David Price spun 2 2/3 scoreless relief innings and notched the win Friday versus the Reds.

Price replaced Rick Porcello to begin the fifth inning and served as a bridge to get to Addison Reed and Craig Kimbrel in the late innings. He gave up three hits and one walk while striking out four. Perhaps most importantly, Price collected his third major league hit and his first since 2010. The southpaw doesn’t have much fantasy value in a relief role, but he could be an interesting weapon for the Red Sox in the postseason.

David Price could pitch in a save situation for the Red Sox on Wednesday night, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Craig Kimbrel and Addison Reed are both unavailable due to their recent usage. Price made his first relief appearance for the Red Sox on Sunday, throwing two scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 11:34:00 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.

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.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 05:24:00 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.
