Price (finger) played catch today without any issues and will make his scheduled start Thursday against the Twins, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a sigh of relief for both the Red Sox and fantasy owners, as it seems Price will be able to manage the cracked fingernail on his pitching hand. The southpaw allowed five earned runs on 11 hits over 5.2 innings in his lone start against Minnesota last season and owns a 4.66 ERA over five starts this month.

Price (finger) has been dealing with a cracked finger nail that developed during his start Saturday, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Price has dealt with this sort of injury before, this adds to the growing list of injuries for the southpaw. Price is also dealing with a blister, which is on the opposite hand, but neither seems to be affecting his play in a significant way. During Saturday's start against the Angels, Price allowed two earned runs off six hits in six innings of work, while striking out five.

Price (2-2) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and a walk while striking out five batters through six innings during Saturday's loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

While Price wasn't at his best Saturday, he was also a victim of a lack of run support Saturday. The lefty owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 through his six starts this season, and his 5.76 FIP is a career-high mark. After missing almost all of the first two months of the season, Price has struggled to find his form. The upside is there, and Boston has championship aspirations, so Price remains a must-own hurler in all fantasy settings. A home start against the Twins is on tap for the veteran.

Price (2-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a win Sunday against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Price's control problems were obvious, as he threw two wild pitches and hit a batter on top of the three walks. He probably shouldn't have been sent out for the sixth inning, as he was already over 100 pitches when Jake Marisnick hit a leadoff home run to end his night. That mistake will mar what was otherwise a start characterized by excellent damage control, but either way, Price has yet to hit a rhythm since returning from injury in late May. His ERA sits at 5.14 in his four starts since returning.

Price didn't throw a bullpen session prior to his last start due to a blister, but he was able to complete a bullpen outing Thursday, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the ominous nature blisters seem to have this season, it seems like Price's issue wasn't much of a problem in the big picture. Despite being thrown off his normal routine, the southpaw managed to deliver a quality start Tuesday and doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing any time due to the ailment.

Price (1-1) gave up three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings but came away with a no-decision in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

It's the second straight start in which the left-hander has walked four batters, but he was able to limit the damage this time. Price's return from an elbow injury has hardly been smooth, but his velocity has ticked up from last season and his results should improve once he shakes off the last of his rust and sharpens his command. He faces a tough test in his next start Sunday on the road against an Astros squad that sits fifth in the league with a .336 wOBA against southpaws.

Price (1-1) allowed six runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out three over five innings in Thursday's 9-1 loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

As good as Price was five days prior, in his second start of the season, against a division rival, he was equally bad Thursday when the Yankees welcomed him back. The left-hander was able to survive the surfeit of walks, allowing just one of them to score, but when he missed location in the zone, the Yankees were on top of it. Gary Sanchez, in particular, who belted two homers in consecutive at-bats off Price. The left-hander gets a more favorable matchup next time out, Tuesday against the Phillies.

Price (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven-plus innings in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

There was a lot to like about Price, who made his second start since coming off the disabled list. He pitched into the eighth inning Saturday, needing 92 pitches, four more pitches than he needed to get through five innings in his first start. And he stopped Boston's two-game losing streak. The left-hander told Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald that he expects to be even better going forward, citing that Saturday's performance was only his fourth competitive outing. Price will look to prove himself right when he next pitches Thursday in New York against the Yankees.

Price will be on a pitch count when he starts Saturday, the second start since coming off the disabled list, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a spring training elbow injury, Price was limited to no more than 90 pitches in his first start off the DL last Monday. He threw 88 pitches against the White Sox in his first start, with manager John Farrell saying he doesn't expect much more than that Saturday.

Price made his 2017 debut Monday, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four in a 5-4 loss to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Price's lone mistake was missing middle to Melky Cabrera who deposited a poorly located fastball into the left-center seats for a three-run home run. Other than that, it was a positive start for the left-hander who had been knocked around in two rehabilitation starts in the minors. Price is next scheduled to toe the rubber Saturday in Baltimore.
