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.

Silverman: Sale, Price, Porcello best Big 3 for now, but pale historically | Boston Herald

The Red Sox trio was pretty good last year. They aren’t as good as other recent trios for other teams.

Based on the most recent measurement available, 2016 performance, unless another top-flight starter switches teams before the start of the 2017 season, the Red Sox trio will rank as the best in the game. Using FanGraphs’ WAR from 2016, Porcello (5.2), Price (4.5) and Sale (5.2 with the White Sox) add up to a 14.9 WAR.
...
Siting atop the recent list is the 1996 Braves, whose best trio of John Smoltz (8.4), Greg Maddux (7.8) and Tom Glavine (5.3) combined for a 21.5 WAR. They lost that World Series to the Yankees in six games. The year before, when Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine led the Atlanta Braves to their first and only world championship, the three aces posted a modest 16.8 combined WAR.

If you’re curious about where the three Red Sox world championship teams checked in according to FanGraphs’ WAR, it breaks down like this: 2004: 14.7 (Schilling, Pedro Martinez and Bronson Arroyo); 2007: 10.1 (Josh Beckett, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Schilling) and 2013: 8.1 (Lester, Clay Buchholz and John Lackey).
