David Price had an elbow injury that prevented him from starting the year with the Red Sox. Supposedly, the injury has resurfaced, prompting the Red Sox to place him on the disabled list this morning. Price was scheduled to start the first game of the team's home stand tonight.
This does not pass the smell test for me. Price, who was likely to be under fire tonight from the Fenway crowd after it was reported that he harassed team broadcaster and Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley on a team flight in June, seems to be using the elbow as an excuse to avoid the Boston fans.
