Yankees, Red Sox Await Results Of Dr. Andrew's Exam On Price
Mar 04 2017
Although he offered no updates on his sore elbow, which prompted him to get a second opinion from Dr. Andrews, the tone of his tweet suggests that he did not receive any bad news.
Red Sox left-hander David Price underwent an MRI after experiencing soreness in his elbow, as first reported by ESPN's Jim Bowden. Some have said that they come back throwing harder, but we will have to wait and see if that is what Price even needs.
"We got positive news after the exam by Dr. Andrews and Dr. ElAttrache", Farrell told the Boston media. "No surgery, no PRP or any injection of any kind". Rodriguez struggled to a 3-7 record and 4.71 ERA in 20 with the Red Sox.
Manager John Farrell said Friday that he expected Price to meet with them in the afternoon.
Price has been a workhorse since 2010 with the Rays.
Boston Red Sox fans can breathe easier for now.
However it would been a scary proposition heading into the season without their ace, who just signed a seven-year, $217 million deal last off-season. With the addition of Chris Sale, however, it was widely thought that Sale would relieve the bulk of the pressure on Price to perform in these situations.
The Boston Red Sox are one of the favorites to win the American League pennant in 2017.
