Price struck out four, ending the game with a 3.57 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price has pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings in two appearances since coming off the DL and moving to the bullpen.
Sep. 18 10:08 PM PT11:08 PM MT12:08 AM CT1:08 AM ET1:08 ET5:08 GMT13:08 10:08 PM MST12:08 AM EST12:38 AM VEN9:08 UAE12:08 AM CT-David Price did not allow a hit or walk in 2.0 scoreless innings as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday. Price struck out two, ending the game with a 3.71 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price was quite sharp in his first outing since being sidelined nearly two months with a sore elbow. Though the former Tampa ace likely won't be tabbed to start over the remainder of the season, he could wind up as a valuable piece out of the bullpen should the Red Sox reach the playoffs.
July 28 8:23 AM PT9:23 AM MT10:23 AM CT11:23 AM ET11:23 ET15:23 GMT23:23 8:23 AM MST10:23 AM EST10:53 AM VEN19:23 UAE10:23 AM CT-The Boston Red Sox activated Price from the 10-day disabled list and declared the left-hander will be used out of the bullpen for the rest of the season, the team announced Thursday.
Analysis: Price has been sidelined since July 28 with left elbow inflammation. The 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner began the season on the disabled list with a left elbow strain before returning on May 29. He posted a 5-3 mark with a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts before making another trek to the disabled list.
July 23 10:47 AM PT11:47 AM MT12:47 PM CT1:47 PM ET13:47 ET17:47 GMT1:47 10:47 AM MST12:47 PM EST1:17 PM VEN21:47 UAE12:47 PM CT-David Price fell to 5-3, allowing six runs - five earned - on seven hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Angels 7-3 on Saturday. Price struck out five, ending the game with a 3.82 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price came in 2-0 with a spectacular 0.90 ERA through his first three starts of July, but couldn't sustain that level of excellence while being dealt a second loss to the Angels this season. The well-paid lefty will try to bounce back in Friday's meeting with the visiting Royals, and he sports a solid 2.67 ERA at home in 2017.
July 17 9:44 AM PT10:44 AM MT11:44 AM CT12:44 PM ET12:44 ET16:44 GMT0:44 9:44 AM MST11:44 AM EST12:14 PM VEN20:44 UAE11:44 AM CT-David Price improved to 5-2, allowing seven hits over a season-high 8.0 scoreless innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 3-0 on Sunday. Price struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.39 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The standout lefty proved once again that the elbow issues that sidelined him for the season's first two months are no longer a major issue. Price heads into Saturday's visit to Anaheim 3-0 with a 1.67 ERA in his last four starts, and he hasn't allowed a home run while amassing 29 strikeouts over that strong stretch.

Analysis: This was Price's best performance yet this season after a thoroughly mediocre June.
June 30 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET11:41 ET15:41 GMT23:41 8:41 AM MST10:41 AM EST11:11 AM VEN19:41 UAE10:41 AM CT-David Price improved to 3-2, allowing three runs on six hits in 7.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 6-3 on Thursday. Price struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.61 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The accomplished lefty matched a season high in strikeouts and threw 112 pitches, his most since returning from an elbow injury in late May. Though Price has hardly been dominant - he's allowed at least three runs in five straight starts and owns a 5.28 ERA during that stretch - he's at least showing signs of regaining his prior form.
June 25 10:05 PM PT11:05 PM MT12:05 AM CT1:05 AM ET1:05 ET5:05 GMT13:05 10:05 PM MST12:05 AM EST12:35 AM VEN9:05 UAE12:05 AM CT-Price fell to 2-2, allowing three runs - two earned - on six hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Saturday. Price struck out five, ending the game with a 4.76 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price, who started the season on the disabled list with a strained left elbow, had a decent outing for the third time in six starts.
June 19 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET13:15 ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:45 PM VEN21:15 UAE12:15 PM CT-David Price improved to 2-1, allowing three runs on eight hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Houston Astros 6-5 on Sunday. Price struck out three, ending the game with a 5.14 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: In five games since coming off the DL on May 29, Price has issued 14 walks in 28 innings for 4.5 walks per nine innings. From 2013-16, he had a ratio of 1.65 walks per 9 - fifth best in the majors. Asked to evaluate how he's pitching this season: ''It's just been terrible,'' Price said. ''It's been bad. It's not me. I can throw the baseball better. That's the bottom line.'' He'll make his next start Saturday against the Angels.

Analysis: Another nightmare visit to Yankee Stadium for Price, who's now 0-4 with an 8.72 ERA in four starts at the venue since signing his mega-deal with the Red Sox prior to last season. The embattled lefty will look to bounce back in what should be a softer spot Tuesday at home against the Phillies.
June 4 9:21 PM PT10:21 PM MT11:21 PM CT12:21 AM ET0:21 ET4:21 GMT12:21 9:21 PM MST11:21 PM EST11:51 PM VEN8:21 UAE11:21 PM CT-David Price improved to 1-0, allowing one run on three hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Saturday. Price struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.00 ERA and 0.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price shut the Orioles out through the first six innings and threw 92 pitches in his second start back from an elbow strain. The five-time All-Star has quickly regained his form, though he draws an recent nemesis when he visits Yankee Stadium on Thursday. He went 1-3 with a 7.89 ERA in five matchups with the Bronx Bombers last season.
May 29 2:59 PM PT3:59 PM MT4:59 PM CT5:59 PM ET17:59 ET21:59 GMT5:59 2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST5:29 PM VEN1:59 UAE (+1)4:59 PM CT-David Price allowed three runs on two hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Monday. Price struck out four, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 0.80 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price, who missed the first part of the year with a left elbow strain, threw 88 pitches in an uneven season debut. He gave up a three-run homer and hit two batters but was in line for the win before the White Sox scored twice in the seventh.
Mar. 2 9:03 AM PT10:03 AM MT11:03 AM CT12:03 PM ET12:03 ET17:03 GMT1:03 10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:33 PM VEN21:03 UAE11:03 AM CT-Price will make his season debut Monday in Chicago after making his second rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, allowing six runs - three earned - seven hits and a walk in 3 2/3 innings.
Analysis: Manager John Farrell said scouts liked what they saw of Price despite his unimpressive line. We'll find out if they were right.
