A few days ago it seemed like David Price’s season could be over before it started. He had an MRI on his elbow and paid the infamous Visit to Dr. James Andrews.

But then he got good news: now surgery or treatment needed. Just rest. Now Red Sox manager John Farrell says that Price will be allowed to throw on Friday or Saturday if he feels up to it.

It’s still unknown how his elbow will respond once he ramps up again, but with this stuff it’s one step at a time. Given the delay in his program for the spring there’s still a very good chance he begins the season late even if he doesn’t experience any problems, but so far so good.
