David Price's disastrous season gets worse with reportedly serious elbow injury

The Red Sox open a three-game series vs. the Royals on Friday.

Boston Red Sox left-handed pitcher David Price, sidelined for the first two months of the season, was placed on Major League Baseball's 10-day disabled list Friday with an inflamed left elbow. Price himself did refer to the injury at least once as a "torn elbow", so this seems pretty problematic.

Price did not make his 2017 debut until May 29 due to elbow inflammation and stiffness that began early in Spring Training.

Price has made headlines lately after he called out Hall of Famer and NESN analyst Dennis Eckersley on the team plane, after Eckersely made a negative remark about Eduardo Rodriguez's pitching during a broadcast. That story broke amidst an ongoing feud between Price and the Boston media that included a heated postgame exchange between the pitcher and a reporter. He has made 11 starts with a 5-3 record and 3.82 ERA.

Price, who was traded to Toronto in the 2015 season, signed with Boston before the 2016 campaign, in which he went 17-9 with 228 strikeouts and a 3.99 earned-run average.
