NEW YORK (AP) — Red Sox lefty David Price has been sent back to Boston for medical tests after experiencing a tingling sensation in his pitching hand again.
Price was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the rival New York Yankees. Red Sox manager Alex Cora says Price felt tingling in his hand Sunday while throwing a bullpen that was cut short, the same symptoms that forced him out of an early-season game against the Yankees in Boston.
Rick Porcello was moved up a day to pitch Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, with left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez going Thursday night. Both will be on regular rest because the Red Sox were off Monday.
Price is 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA in seven starts during his third season with Boston. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner signed a $217 million, seven-year contract with the Red Sox in December 2015 but has been slowed by injuries the past two years.
