Red Sox pitcher Price sidelined with wrist injury

August 8 2019 10:36 PM

Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price is heading to the injured list (IL) due to a wrist issue.

The Red Sox have placed the pitcher on the 10-day IL, with the move retroactive to August 5, the team announced on Thursday.

The move comes after an MRI revealed he has a TFCC cyst in his left wrist, which was treated with a cortisone shot.

Righty Hector Velazquez has been called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill Price's spot on the roster.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise, since there was no indication Price was dealing with any discomfort. If treatment goes well, he will be eligible to return next Friday.

However, it could explain why Price has struggled since the All-Star break. In his past two starts, he has allowed 11 runs on 18 hits – including four home runs – in seven innings.

This marks the second time Price has been placed on the IL this season. He missed two weeks in May with tendinitis in his elbow.
