Boston Red Sox

There’s no doubt that Red Sox starter David Price has regained his form in the last month.

In fact, since the now-infamous ‘Fortnite’ fiasco that was reportedly one of the reasons behind Price’s hand ailment and subsequent scratch from a scheduled start in New York, Price has been lights out. With a 6-0 record and 47 strikeouts in 44-plus innings pitched, Price has been among the league’s best across the board. The lefty’s fastball was at its best mark of the season in his last start, too, a fantastic pitcher’s duel of a victory over the Mariners’ Felix Hernandez last Thursday.

But citing that he feels like it’s October, the 32-year-old seems to want the rest that comes with the league’s All-Star break.

He’s even willing to use ‘Fortnite’ as a potential out for appearing in the midsummer classic.

“I ain’t going,” Price said of a potential All-Star Game appearance at Nationals Park in July. “I’m not an All-Star.”

But the decision may not be Price’s to make, as Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch could select Price to be one of the American League’s pitchers. Hinch, of course, got a good look at what Price can do out of the bullpen in last year’s ALDS series.

“I feel like if [Hinch] did it would just be to get me to throw an extra inning,” joked Price. “That would be a pretty pro move on his part. I’ll come up with something if I am an All-Star that I won’t have to pitch.

“I’ll play a lot of Fortnite the night before.”

Price gets the call Wednesday night in Minnesota against the Twins.
