The Boston Red Sox announced on Monday that starter David Price has been placed on the 10-day Injured List with left elbow tendinitis. It’s the third time in as many seasons that Price will have to miss time during the regular season due to issues in his throwing arm/hand.
Price’s first long-term injury as a member of the Red Sox came in 2017 when he had inflammation in his left elbow. He didn’t require surgery. Price made 30 regular season starts in 2018, but missed time due to mild carpal tunnel syndrome in his left wrist.
The southpaw’s move to the IL is retroactive to Friday, May 3. Boston has called up right-handed pitcher Ryan Weber from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Price’s spot.
Price, 33, is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA in six starts so far in 2019. He’d posted a 2.63 ERA in his previous four starts prior to the elbow injury. After pitching 230 innings and leading the AL with 35 starts in his first season with the Red Sox, Price pitched 250.2 innings in the 2017 and 2018 regular seasons combined.
