The Boston Red Sox have placed starter David Price on the injured list with elbow tendinitis. The move is retroactive to May 3.
A surprising move as Price pitched decently his last time out and pretty darn well his previous three starts before that. The Sox will no doubt talk more about this later today when the clubhouses open in Baltimore where they’re taking on the Orioles.
Price is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 42/10 in 36 innings in six starts.
LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.
Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.
Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.
The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
