David Price is feeling under the weather, and when he'll return to the Boston Red Sox rotation and pitch again is not yet known.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora provided an update on the veteran left-hander Wednesday, revealing he'll throw a bullpen session soon.
Cora said David Price (illness) is feeling better. Will throw "aggressive bullpen tomorrow...We’re running out of time and have to build up. We’ll make decisions when we have to make it. First things first we have to see how he feels tomorrow."— Jason Mastrodonato (@JMastrodonato) March 20, 2019
But not concerned re: Opening Day
Price missed his previously scheduled spring training start Sunday because of an illness.
The Red Sox begin the regular season March 28 in Seattle against the Mariners. Chris Sale already has been announced as the Opening Day starter, but Price, if healthy, would be scheduled to pitch in that series before Boston takes off for Arizona.
Price went 16-7 with a 3.58 ERA in 30 starts last season. He also pitched very well in the playoffs and helped lead the Red Sox to a World Series title over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
