Boston Red Sox Will Have David Price Pitch In Minor League Start On Sunday
Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price is back!!
Well sort of, the team announced that Price will pitch in a minor league game this Sunday for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox which will be his first game action since he injured his left elbow. Price will be taking on Minnesota’s Triple-A Affiliate, the Rochester Red Wings, and will be right down the road from Boston with the game being at home in the friendly confines of McCoy Stadium.
Price has thrown two simulated games, with the most recent one coming Tuesday when he threw four innings. Farrell told the Dale, Holley and Keefe Show on WEEI on Wednesday afternoon that the team was waiting to see Price felt after the Tuesday session.
But with the news of a rehab start it is being assumed he is feeling positive after Tuesdays workout. Reports are saying that Price will pitch for five innings or 70 pitches on Sunday for the Paw Sox.
If Price made two minor-league rehab assignments before rejoining the major league team, that would put his season debut with the Red Sox at Fenway Park against the Rangers on May 24. If he makes three, that would push him back into Chicago against the White Sox on May 29.
