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.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
