BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Red Sox pitchers and catchers are in spring camp ahead of the start of their workouts tomorrow, and that includes highly-paid ace David Price.
The southpaw won 17 games and led the majors in innings his first year in Boston but, last year, Price was limited to 81-and-a-third frames between the regular season and playoffs because of an elbow injury.
Fortunately, he told WBZ's Jonny Miller he's feeling good now.
Miller asked if there was any reason to think Price wouldn't be ready to start the season.
"No, no doubt in my mind I'll be ready," he said.
Good news there.
Price also has a new manager--Alex Cora.
He's probably happy about that since he didn't always appear to be on the same page with John Farrell.
"He came to Ft. Myers and Jackie Bradley, Sale, myself, Sandy, we all had lunch with him," Price said. "He made his rounds, and he feels like one of the guys ... I like Alex, and I guess it's kind of to be determined, manager-wise and stuff like that, but I think he's going to be great."
Hopefully he doesn't start calling him "Manager Alex."
