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

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

Price has sparred with the media this season, including a much-publicized incident in which he lashed out at Hall of Fame pitcher and current TV analyst Dennis Eckersley on the team plane June 29.

" ESPN's Scott Lauber reported that Price had been placed on the disabled list, while ESPN's Buster Olney added that Price had an MRI on his left elbow Thursday". So far this season he stands 5-3 with a 3.82 earned-run average and 63 strikeouts over 66 innings in 11 starts. He has not started since the Boston Globe published the details of his run-in with Eckersley.

Price, 31, will reportedly miss Friday's start against the Royals and be replaced by Brian Johnson.

Price was left off the Opening Day roster as a result of the injury.

In March, Price was diagnosed with a strain of flexor mass muscle in the forearm near his elbow, delaying his season debut to late May. That story led to a week of talk radio bashing of Price.

In a column that ran in Friday's newspaper, the Herald's Ron Borges called for the home fans at Fenway Park to "boo David Price off the pitcher's mound" during his start Friday.
