Alex Cora gives update on David Price's illness, return to Red Sox rotation

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.

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.

PawSox celebrating A-Rod & J-Lo engagement with hilarious promotion

PawSox celebrating A-Rod & J-Lo engagement with hilarious promotion

The Pawtucket Red Sox are celebrating Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez's engagement with a clever promotion.

On April 12 at McCoy Stadium, fans wearing Jason Varitek or Bronson Arroyo jerseys will be able to attend the PawSox's game against the Syracuse Mets free of charge. The promotion is a flashback to July 24, 2004, when A-Rod and Varitek famously went at it and sparked an unforgettable brawl after Arroyo plunked the Yankees slugger with a pitch.

Fans by the name of Jennifer will be admitted free as well, along with all children 12 and under. But wait, there's more. . .

Per MiLB.com:

- Recalling a fond memory of August 10, 2003, PawSox fans will also have the opportunity to touch and take pictures of the actual pitching rubber toed by Bronson Arroyo when he threw the most recent of the two perfect games in PawSox History. The artifact will be on display at the PawSox Fan Center presented by Vertikal6. (Fans wearing the jersey of the pitcher who threw the PawSox' first perfect game will be admitted free as well. As Yogi Berra said, "You can look it up.")

- Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, who is expected to be playing with the Syracuse Mets, will walk up to Mariah Carey's greatest hits for the duration of his series at McCoy Stadium as a salute to one of J.Lo's greatest rivals.

- Long-time Red Sox fan and Cambridge, MA native Ben Affleck has been cordially invited to throw out the game's Ceremonial First Pitch-for obvious reasons. 

- Ross-Simons, the official jeweler of the Pawtucket Red Sox, will be on hand to inspect fan's wedding rings, so that "nobody is fooled by the rocks that our PawSox fans got," to paraphrase Pawtucket's favorite "Jenny from the Block."

The promotion kicks off the PawSox's 2019 “Legendary Fridays” series and is a celebration of their “50 Years Together” with the Boston Red Sox.
