Price's removal of Tuesday's start after 73 pitches and five innings was not due to injury, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Price pitched well in what turned out to be a 17-inning game, so questions were naturally raised. Manager Alex Cora said the early hook was "kind of" planned with the invention of preserving the left-hander's longevity and availability over the course of the season. "We're going to take advantage of the next 10, 12 days with the off days and all of that," Cora said. "With him going off the IL and the short starts and all that stuff, we have to make sure he's OK. He's OK, actually. It's one of those that we felt that today was one those we were short, all out and move on." Yesterday 9:03 am (EST)
- Price didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's marathon extra-innings loss to the Twins, allowing one run on four hits over five innings while striking out two.
- Price lasted just 1.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Thursday, giving up six earned runs on five hits, striking out two and walking one as the Red Sox eventually pulled out a 7-6 victory.
- Price (4-2) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 over six innings to earn the win in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay. All David Price (L) News
