Red Sox starter David Price lasted only one inning in Wednesday night’s start against the Yankees. The lefty walked off the mound looking at his left hand or arm, per ESPN’s Scott Lauber.

Update: Price was removed for “precautionary reasons” because he felt a “sensation” in his left hand. He’ll undergo further evaluations, per Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston.

Price surrendered four runs in the first inning to the Yankees. Two scored on a Giancarlo Stanton triple and the other two scored on a Gary Sanchez home run. Overall, price allowed three hits and walked two while striking out one on 35 pitches.

Bobby Poyner relieved Price to start the second inning.

The Red Sox should provide an update on Price’s status later tonight.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
