David Price had MRI on elbow, Red Sox to place him on disabled list
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price had an MRI on his left elbow Thursday, reports ESPN's Buster Olney.
Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe tweeted Friday morning that Price's elbow is "barking again," and Evan Drellich of CSN New England is now reporting that the left-hander will be placed on the disabled list. The 31-year-old hurler already missed nearly two months at the start of the season due to an elbow injury, but it's unknown how significant of an issue he's dealing with this time around. Brian Johnson figures to replace Price in the rotation tonight against the Kansas City Royals for what would be his sixth start in the majors this season.
Price owns a 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 22.1 strikeout percentage across 66 innings this season while going 5-3 in 11 starts.
