Hurley: David Price Making Case Against Himself As Fit For Boston « CBS Boston

This type of reaction doesn’t bode well for David Price’s future in Boston.

As reported by Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald, Price pulled Drellich aside after the Red Sox’ loss to the Yankees and berated him loudly enough for reporters on the other side of a closed door to hear. Price later continued his confrontation with Drellich, and also snapped at Buckley (who had been told by the Red Sox media relations director to stick around to talk to Price).

The interactions with Price ended when he shouted, “[Expletive] them! [Expletive] them all. All of them.”

As one might imagine, such a meltdown drew attention, and it will assuredly be discussed in the days and weeks to come.

Piling on David Price makes no sense

CHB, Mr. Sensitivity, exposes David Price for the sensitive guy that he is. Sensitive players shouldn’t sign big-money contracts to play in Boston. Sensitive players shouldn’t be talking to CHB.

“I’m not cautious,’’ he insisted. “I’m the same me. I don’t talk to the media every day like I did last year and I guess I get blown up for that. But I was honest with everything they asked me last year and I get blown up for that. So they did this to themselves. Talk to me on the day I pitch and that’s it. There are no more personal interviews. There are no more asking me questions on a personal level. That’s done.’’

Struggles show David Price still isn’t ready for Boston Red Sox return - Boston Red Sox Blog- ESPN

Maybe signing 30+ starting pitchers to big free agent contracts really isn’t a good idea.

Price, meanwhile, made what was supposed to be his final Triple-A rehab start in his return from a spring training elbow scare. He was in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, one hour from Fenway, but after giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits and expending 89 pitches to get through only 3⅔ innings, he must have felt light years away.

Of course, nobody knows for sure how Price felt, physically or otherwise, because he didn’t stick around to speak to reporters. And Farrell deferred when he was asked if Price would be ready to start for the Red Sox next week, as had been the hope.

“We’ll sit and talk with him [Thursday],” Farrell said. “We’ll check with him in the morning, make sure there’s no physical ailments—which we don’t expect any—and we’ll sit with him and map out the next step.”

Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price won’t need surgery on arm

David Price doesn’t need surgery.

That was the verdict Friday after the Boston Red Sox ace had his sore left elbow examined by prominent orthopedic surgeons Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Price is expected to rejoin the Red Sox at their spring training camp Saturday in Fort Myers, Florida.

Boston manager John Farrell told reporters that the findings of Andrews and ElAttrache represented the best-case scenario for Price, who will rest and receive treatment for the next seven to 10 days.

“A very positive exam, given the concern a couple days ago,” Farrell told reporters after the Red Sox’s 9-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

David Price elbow soreness, MRI has him sidelined

Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price had an MRI on his sore left elbow and will miss his next start, according to Jim Bowden on Twitter, who reports that BoSox manager John Farrell says they are “concerned” due to the soreness being “more than in [the] past.”

If Price’s elbow issues are serious, it could have a significant impact in the American League East, where Boston is currently the favorite, in no small part due to the combination of Price and Chris Sale at the top of their rotation. Elbow soreness in a pitcher is inherently alarming, and while it could be nothing, one has to think there is worry in Boston about whether there is UCL damage. UCL damage, of course, generally leads to Tommy John surgery, which usually sidelines a pitcher for 12-18 months.
