The Red Sox plan to keep Price on turn despite Monday's off day, so he should line up to pitch Tuesday and Sunday of next week, the Boston Herald's Evan Drellich reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will allow owners to get one more regular season start out of Price than they would have if the Red Sox had not tweaked the rotation order. As things stand, he should start Tuesday in New York and Sunday at home against the Blue Jays.

Price (17-9) went seven innings in Thursday's win over Baltimore, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out five and walked two.

EDGE Analysis

Back on Aug. 7, Price fell to 9-9 with a 4.34 ERA after giving up six runs against the Dodgers. A month and a half later, he's a 17-game winner -- In his last nine starts, the ace southpaw has gone 8-0 with a 2.86 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 63:10 K:BB. That is to say, he's finally himself again, and this turnaround couldn't have come at a more crucial time for his fantasy owners.

Price didn't factor into the decision against the Yankees on Saturday, giving up five earned runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The hard-throwing left-hander didn't have his best stuff, but did induce 12 swinging strikes overall. Price was touched up early by Brett Gardner for an RBI triple in the third and Gary Sanchez followed with a 436-foot shot over the Green Monster that plated the latter. Andrew Romine then followed with a two-RBI double to deep left in the fourth, leaving the Red Sox in a 5-2 hole at that point. Price had come in to Saturday with victories in his last seven decisions, all quality starts, so Saturday's effort was his poorest in well over a month. He'll look to bounce back against the Orioles next Thursday.

Price (16-8) went eight masterful innings Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and no walks while striking out nine and earning the win against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox provided Price with 11 runs of support Monday, not that he needed it. Price's lone blemishes were a pair of solo homers by Chris Davis and Manny Machado in the second and fourth innings respectively. Price has been absolutely dominant of late, earning a win in each of his last seven starts, all of which were quality starts. He's struck out 17 while walking no one over his last two starts, raising his K:BB ratio to nearly 5:1 on the year. He'll look to continue his winning ways against the Yankees on Saturday.

Price allowed two runs on six hits without a walk while striking out eight over seven innings in Wednesday night's 7-2 win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Price is rolling right now, having won six straight and, along with Rick Porcello, solidifying the top end of Boston's rotation. Some of those six wins have come against the underbelly of MLB -- the Padres, A's, Rays and Diamondbacks -- but he's also pitched well against Baltimore and Kansas City during the run. We'll get a good read on Price resurgence in the following turns through the rotation as the schedule pivots to competition in the AL East. He's projected to start next Tuesday against Baltimore then the following Sunday against the resurgent Yankees.

Price allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out seven over seven innings in Boston's 16-2 win over Oakland. The right-hander is 5-0 with a 2.06 earned run average in his last five starts.

EDGE Analysis

Price continued what has been his best stretch of the season. He's been making better pitches, keeping the ball out of the middle of the plate, and finishing off batters. Price will look to make it six straight next Wednesday in San Diego.

Price allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in Boston's 8-3 win over Kansas City on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

A big start for Price, who stopped Boston's three-game losing streak while lowering his season ERA, which stood at 6.75 in May, to 3.97. The improved velocity and location of his fastball, with a corresponding improved changeup, have fueled Price's best stretch of the season. He's allowed just 13 earned runs over 48 innings (2.44 ERA), over his last seven starts. The signs are there that he's pitching like a pitcher upon whom the Red Sox lavished $30 million per year in the offseason.

Price (12-8) was dominant on Monday, shutting out the Rays for eight innings. He allowed two hits, walked two, and struck out eight.

EDGE Analysis

Price has now won three straight decisions, bringing his ERA down to an even 4.00-the lowest point it's reached since his first start of the season. The lefty has been mired in his worst season since his first full season in the Majors, but may finally be turning the corner. Even if the ratios aren't where they usually are, Price is behind only Chris Archer and Justin Verlander in strikeouts among AL pitchers. His next start will come Saturday against the Royals.

Price allowed one run on four hits without a walk while striking out four in six innings to pick up the win in Wednesday night's rain-shortened game against Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Price has had several starts since the All-Star break where it seemed he was on the verge of breaking out of a season-long malaise, but something always undercut him -- poor command, too many hits, inability to put hitters away, shaky bullpen -- but it came together for him in six innings Wednesday. Following a second-inning homer, Price allowed just two singles the rest of the way. He didn't blow them away, but the Orioles managed mostly weak contact and never generated much of a threat -- only one at-bat with a man in scoring position. His 3.77 ERA since the break is nothing to brag about, but it certainly looks better than the 4.34 he had in the first half. Price will look to keep up his good work next Monday at Tampa Bay.

Price allowed three runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out eight over eight innings in Boston's 9-4 win over Arizona on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Price, who earned his first win since July 10, gave up a couple of homers and told Annie Maroon of MassLive.com that he still needs "to throw the ball better." There's certainly room for improvement -- Price hasn't been consistent from start to start, is giving up a ton of hits, and has allowed more homers this season than he did in all of 2015. "I've got a four and a half (ERA) right now, and that's not what I envisioned whenever I came here," Price said when asked about pitching eight full innings on Friday. "I've had my fair share of really bad games, of two innings or three innings or not making it through five or pitching into the sixth, so it helps to get those sevens and those eights, but I've still got to throw the ball better." Price's next scheduled start is Wednesday at division-leading Baltimore.
