All that wear and tear is beginning to show.
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. He added that Price could potentially resume throwing as soon as Monday or Tuesday.
David Price's elbow is acting up, and it appears he's headed for the disabled list. He missed the start of the season and made his first start on May 29. Rick Porcello will start in Price's place. Price has put together stretches of dominance here and there in his time with the Red Sox, but things have just looked off with him.
Price has made headlines lately after he called out Hall of Famer and NESN analyst Dennis Eckersley on the team plane, after Eckersely made a negative remark about Eduardo Rodriguez's pitching during a broadcast.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Red Sox do not plan to seek an immediate replacement for Price on the trade market. The 31-year-old has led the majors in innings pitched two of the last three seasons, working 230 last year in his first season in Boston.
