Price will pitch Game 2 of the ALCS versus Houston on Sunday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Alex Cora will stick with a similar game plan after trotting out Chris Sale followed by Price in the ALDS against the Yankees. Price was unable to close out the second inning in his lone appearance in that series, allowing three runs off three hits and two walks over 1.2 innings during Saturday's Game 2 start in Boston. He will get another chance at home, and figures to line up for an additional home start in Game 6 should the series extend past five games. In his two outings versus the Astros in 2018, Price allowed just five earned runs while striking out 17 across 12.1 innings of work.

Price (16-7) picked up the win Wednesday against the Orioles, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't Price's sharpest outing, as he served up multiple homers for a second straight start, but he was able to cruise to his 16th victory behind 19 runs from Boston's offense. The southpaw has faltered a bit over his final two starts, allowing seven runs across 10.1 innings, though he'll still finish the season with a 3.58 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 177:50 K:BB through 30 starts (176 innings). Price is currently lined up to start Game 2 of the ALDS.

Price will not start Tuesday against the Orioles as the game has been postponed, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday. An updated rotation has not yet been announced, but it would be a surprise if Price doesn't end up starting one of those two games. The postponement costs Price any chance he may have had of starting twice this week, as he'd now been on short rest for the final game of the season Sunday against the Yankees.

Price (wrist) will start Friday against the Astros, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price was forced to miss a start after taking a liner off his wrist in his previous appearance. X-rays were negative and he'll only end up missing a single turn in the rotation, though he'll have a tough assignment in his first outing back from injury.

Price (wrist) is expected to start during the Red Sox next homestand, which begins next weekend, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price played catch prior to Sunday's and and is likely to have a bullpen session over the next couple days in Atlanta. Whether the 33-year-old's start comes against the Astros next weekend or the following series against the Blue Jays remains to be seen. The veteran left-hander was hit by a line drive on his left wrist during Wednesday's start against the Marlins, and appears as though he may miss only one turn through the rotation.

Price (wrist) will have his next start pushed back, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price suffered a left wrist contusion after getting hit by a liner during Wednesday's game. X-rays showed nothing alarming -- as did additional tests he underwent Thursday -- though he's still not expected to be ready to take the mound Monday against the Braves. The Red Sox hope he'll be cleared to rejoin the rotation shortly after Monday. Hector Velazquez is the leading candidate to make a spot start in place of Price.

X-rays on Price's left wrist came back negative, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price was diagnosed with a left wrist contusion after getting hit by a liner in the third inning of Wednesday's game against the Marlins. Initial tests confirmed the diagnosis, though the Red Sox added that further testing will be done as needed. Assuming Price escaped with a bruise, the southpaw's status for his next start -- which is scheduled for Monday against the Braves -- will likely depend on his between starts bullpen.

Price was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins with a left wrist contusion, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price suffered the injury after taking a liner off his wrist in the third inning Wednesday. The southpaw recovered to throw out Austin Dean to end the inning, but immediately went into the clubhouse with trainers afterwards before giving way to Hector Velazquez prior to the fourth inning. He allowed three runs on five hits while striking out three across three innings before exiting, ending a steak of seven consecutive quality starts. Price will be further evaluated before the Red Sox determine his status for his next start.

Price (14-6) picked up the win Thursday against the Indians, striking out seven while allowing just three hits through eight scoreless innings.

EDGE Analysis

Price was locked in Thursday, allowing just three singles (and a hit batter) while firing 68 of his 101 pitches for strikes en route to his fourth straight win. The veteran southpaw has been one of the hottest pitchers since the All-Star break, compiling a 3-0 record to go with an impressive 1.09 ERA and 40:7 K:BB across six starts (41.1 innings). He'll look to keep things rolling as he faces a lowly Marlins team at Fenway next time out.
