John Farrell: 'Aggressive' to put David Price (elbow) back in Red Sox' rotation
Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that it would be "aggressive" to use David Price (elbow) as a starter once he returns.
Per Farrell, he and Price will sit down on Thursday to determine the pitcher's role for the rest of the season, but it sounds like the left-hander will be working out of Boston's bullpen down the stretch. Price could be ready to be activated as soon as next week after throwing a three-inning, 47-pitch simulated game on Wednesday afternoon. He hasn't seen any major league action since July 22 due to elbow discomfort.
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.
