MLB: Will David Price Injury hurt the Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox have a tough start to their 2019 season. This, of course, is coming off a World Series Championship. The Red Sox also set a franchise record for wins in the 2018 season. They were starting to get back on track. Earlier this week David Price became a member of the injured list. He is suffering from left elbow tendinitis. Before his injury, he was a solid starter. The Red Sox have placed him on there for 10 days.
This means he will miss at least two starts. Price came out and said it is not as severe as it was two seasons ago. He only made 11 starts in 16 appearances. The Red Sox can not have that happen again. Price said he has been through this before. He said he just wants to rest it and plans on being back. The Red Sox will have to make do while he is gone.
The Red Sox called up a right-hand reliever Ryan Weber. Weber appeared against the Baltimore Orioles and pitched four scoreless innings. Manager Alex Cora knows that Price will be back. He didn’t put a timetable on his return. This will be a little bit of a problem for the Red Sox who already have Nathan Eovaldi on the injured list. The Red Sox just got back to a .500 record the first since they were 1-1.
The Red Sox offense has gotten better. This will help the staff while Price and Eovaldi are out. I think the Red Sox will be fine they are still early in the season. Chris Sale has some solid starts and Rick Porcello has been doing better. If we keep seeing plays like the one Jackie Bradley Jr. made last night the Red Sox are heading in the right direction. Price will be able to rest and be back when the Red Sox need him in the later parts of the season and the playoffs.
