Red Sox's Price Going Back On DL With Elbow Inflammation

Red Sox's Price Going Back On DL With Elbow Inflammation

Price's official diagnosis is left elbow inflammation, similar to what cost him the start of the season and required trips to several prominent orthopedic surgeons.

Red Sox left-handed pitcher David Price had an MRI done on his pitching elbow Thursday and could miss his scheduled Friday start. The team has yet to announce who will replace Price.

This expands on a previous speculation by The Boston Globe's Dan Shaugnessy about his elbow woes resurfacing. That story broke amidst an ongoing feud between Price and the Boston media that included a heated postgame exchange between the pitcher and a reporter.

Minneapolis authorities have not released the woman's name. "She was treasured and loved and we will really miss her", Reed said. Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said the two officers were responding to a 911 call regarding a possible assault.

Price, 31, didn't make his first start until May 29 this season, as he started the year on the DL due to an injury in his elbow/forearm area. With the trade deadline only three days away, Boston has little time to gauge the severity of Price's injury before deciding whether they need to hunt for a pitcher on the trade market.

Rick Porcello has been moved up to today.

When healthy, the southpaw has gone 5-3 with a 3.82 ERA and 2.86 strikeout-to-walk rate during his second season in Boston.
