David Price stratched from Red Sox start tonight, headed for disabled list

David Price stratched from Red Sox start tonight, headed for disabled list

He has not started since the Boston Globe published the details of his run-in with Eckersley.

In March, Price was diagnosed with a strain of flexor mass muscle in the forearm near his elbow. He has also engaged in more than one public dustup with media members, most recently calling out Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley on a team flight.

The Red Sox will place lefthander David Price on the disabled list with an elbow injury, according to multiple reports.

The left-hander has gone 5-3 with a 3.82 ERA in 11 games this season since returning May 29.

Price was scheduled to be Boston's starter Friday night when the Red Sox open a series at Fenway Park against Kansas City.

Price, who was traded to Toronto in the 2015 season, signed with Boston before the 2016 campaign, in which he went 17-9 with 228 strikeouts and a 3.99 earned-run average. Price has the ability to opt-out of his contract following the 2018 season, but with each new elbow flare-up, the chances he plays out all seven years in Boston increase exponentially. He now has a 5-3 record and an ERA of 3.82.
