Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that David Price played catch Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list with a bum elbow. Abraham says — and shows, via video he tweeted out — that it wasn’t just light throwing on Price’s part and noted that, when he first had elbow issues like this in the spring, it took Price much longer to get to this point.

That’s good news for the Red Sox, who could see their lefty back in action sooner than first expected.
