David Price played some long toss this morning and is scheduled to throw off a mound again tomorrow, but Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters today that Price has been experiencing some soreness around his left elbow. It apparently did not impact his throwing today, however. It was merely being noted.
The Red Sox still don’t have a set timetable for Price’s return. As it was, he wasn’t expected to return until May at the earliest. It’s not clear if the soreness is going to impact that.
Price, 31, is in the second year of a seven-year, $217 million contract signed with the Red Sox in December 2015. In his first season he finished with a 3.99 ERA in 35 starts.
