Red Sox Nation can breathe a sigh of relief after it was reported that starting pitcher David Price will not need surgery on his throwing elbow.
Price, who felt discomfort in the elbow after pitching a simulated game on Tuesday, got a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews after his MRI results came back inconclusive. He said the day after he threw is when the discomfort started happening.
Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters Price would be shut down for seven-to-10 days before he starts throwing again. “The approach we’re going to take with him is he’ll receive medication and treatment,” Farrell said. “We’ll re-evaluate him at that time.”
The lefty has six years, $187 million left on his seven-year contract that he signed with Boston in the 2016 offseason.
