Price will start Game 2 of the ALDS versus Cleveland, Jensen Lewis of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported that Price would be limited for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, so news that the 31-year-old lefty is scheduled to start Game 2 of the ALDS comes as no surprise. However, Price has struggled in his recent starts. For the month of September, Price owns a 4.35 ERA and has given up seven home runs over 41.1 innings.

Price will be limited Sunday in his final start of the regular season, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox have not disclosed a firm pitch limit, but Price will probably be capped at around five innings or so in his final tuneup before the postseason. Price has given up 14 runs in his last three outings following a stretch of seven straight quality starts.

Price (17-9) struggled in Tuesday's loss at Yankee Stadium, giving up six runs on 12 hits and a walk while striking out only two in 6.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Price had won eight consecutive decisions coming into this one, but homers by Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Tyler Austin helped snap that streak. He'll start in Game 162 Sunday against Toronto only if the Red Sox need a win to clinch the AL East. Should the southpaw be rested for the playoffs in the finale, he'll finish the season with a 4.04 ERA to go with 224 strikeouts.

Price is lined up to start Tuesday and then the final game of the regular season Sunday, but Boston manager John Farrell acknowledges those plans could change, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price will start Game 162 only if the Red Sox need it to clinch the AL East, but after Saturday's slate of games, Boston's magic number for the division is three and they could clinch as early as Monday.

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.
