According to MLB.com and manager John Farrell, Boston Red Sox ace David Price will not need arm surgery or injections but rather, will need 7-10 days of rest and recovery to let the discomfort in his elbow secede.
This is fantastic news for the team that is favored to win the American League east crown and looking to add another World Series title to the historic franchise. The three headed monster that is the front end of the rotation, includes Price, Rick Porcello, and newly acquired Chris Sale, who came over in a trade with the White Sox.
After going for a second opinion and MRI on Wednesday, Red Sox personnel expressed concern with the injury, as Price described it as more discomfort than usual. Fans were really holding their breath when it was leaked that Price went to see renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who has performed numerous Tommy John surgeries on prominent pitchers in the past. The Red Sox and fans alike can breathe a sigh of relief as Price looks to return in about a week and continue to get ready for the upcoming season and another postseason run as we are used to seeing with teams that he pitches for.
