Red Sox starter David Price was cratched from Tuesday’s start against the Yankees due to numbness in his fingers. He was shortly thereafter diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Price expects to start on Saturday in Toronto against the Blue Jays, MLB.com’s Ian Browne reports. Refuting other speculation, Price also said he had tests on his elbow and shoulder which both came up “pristine.”
Price, 32, has struggled so far this season. In seven starts spanning 37 innings, the lefty owns a 5.11 ERA with a 32/16 K/BB ratio. He’s in the third year of his seven-year, $217 million contract with the Red Sox.
Bryce Harper hadn’t even addressed his new hometown fans before his Phillies jersey started selling like hotcakes. Since then, he’s said all the expected things. Talking about joining the Phillies, he said, “From day one, it felt right … I always talk about family and being a family, being one unit, and I get that from this team. Every guy has your back and vice versa. I’m very excited to go into battle with these guys.”
Harper is continuing to pander hard to Phillies fans. Behold his latest Instagram post:
Has anyone ever really longed to see the Liberty Bell?
Harper also famously recreated that Chase Utley scene from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with actor Rob McElhenney on Twitter:
In Harper’s next post, he will talk about alternating bottles of You-eng-ling beers with glasses of “wooder.” He’ll add that every so often he will treat himself to a steak sandwich with cheese on it, then go home to watch all of the movies in the Rocky series.
