BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- David Price gave up four runs in the first inning of Wednesday's loss to the Yankees, then left with that issue in his hand. It was the shortest start of his MLB career.
"My whole hand, didn't have any feeling in my fingertips," he said. "That's something I've felt before, but it didn't go away. I had no pain, I have no pain. Even when I came in and did all the stuff for the doctors, I still had no pain."
But, the lefty played catch before yesterday's win and Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed Price will make his next start Tuesday in Anaheim--in warmer weather than than the lousy conditions expected Patriots' Day Monday.
Don't think Price is getting off easy, though. He'll have to face an 11-3 Angels team that ranks just behind the 10-2 Sox for the American League lead.
Los Angeles leads the majors in hits and runs scored--by a lot--as well as homers and slugging percentage.
Not only do they have perennial MVP candidate Mike Trout and powerful vets Albert Pujols and Justin Upton--they also have two-way sensation Shohei Ohtani.
He's batting .346 with three dingers and 11 ribbies in seven games as a hitter, and also has a 2.08 ERA in his first two career starts.
Get ready for some late nights.
