It was more of the same for the Red Sox Thursday night, as they failed to come and make a statement to the Rays. The 9-2 loss makes them losers of 11 of their last 14 games.
BOSTON — David Price went to the disabled list with left elbow inflammation before his scheduled start Friday. It was not immediately known who starts in Price's place.
Price's elbow is believed to have started to hurt him on the road trip the Red Sox finished on Wednesday, a baseball source said, but it's not 100 percent clear when this present health situation originated. ESPN's Buster Olney reported Price went for an MRI on his elbow Thursday.
The lefty missed two months to begin the season because of an elbow/forearm inury. The nature of that injury was never specificed by the team but was later referred to by Price as a torn elbow.
Robby Scott was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to Price's spot on the roster.
The timing of Price's injury is notable because of the controversy surrounding Price and his confrontation with Dennis Eckersley.
The Globe's Dan Shaughnessy first reported Price could land on the DL because of the elbow.
Lou Merloni joins to discuss a source telling him Pedroia applauded Price for his altercation with Eckersley and Tanguay says this has been worse than the chicken and beer incident.
