David Price, Boston’s $217 million pitcher, was scheduled to start on Sunday when the Red Sox take on the Atlanta Braves.
However, he’s been scratched from the start and had an MRI on his left elbow due to his discomfort he felt after throwing his latest simulated game on Tuesday, where he threw 38 pitches. Price said the discomfort started Wednesday morning.
While the details of the MRI have yet to be released, we do know he is seeking a second opinion.
Sox skipper John Farrell told reporters he is concerned and expects Price to see Dr. James Andrews, which, we all know, is not a good sign.
Price finished his first year with Boston with a 17-9 record and a 3.99 ERA through 35 starts. He has been on the disabled list just once in his career in 2013 with a triceps strain.If you want MORE coverage of your team, check out Red Sox Beat Podcast here on CLNS Radio!
