Price (wrist) is no longer losing feeling in his left hand, Michael J. Duarte of NBC Los Angeles reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price went under the knife in September to remove a cyst in his left wrist that had been causing poor circulation and subsequent loss of feeling in his hand since early in his career. With the cyst no longer an issue, Price noted improvements both in his everyday home life and during baseball activities. The veteran is expected to open the regular season as a key part of the Dodgers' starting rotation.

The Red Sox have agreed to send Price (wrist) and Mookie Betts to the Dodgers in exchange for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs and Connor Wong, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Boston will pay half of the $96 million remaining on David Price's salary and the Dodgers will pay the veteran $16 million per season over the next three years, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The original trade involving Minnesota fell through because of a disagreement involving Brusdar Graterol's medical history, which resulted in the Red Sox backing out of trade talks with the Twins. The 34-year-old finished the 2019 season with a 4.28 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 128:32 K:BB across 22 starts.

Price's (wrist) move to the Dodgers was placed on hold at least temporarily after the Twins withdrew from their part of the three-team deal Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins were supposed to send Brusdar Graterol to Boston as part of the deal, but the Red Sox asked for a second prospect from the Twins after being unhappy with Graterol's medical history. Minnesota was uninterested in sending the level of prospect that Boston demanded and elected to withdraw from the deal. That means Price is still on the East Coast for now, but the Red Sox and Dodgers are expected to try to find a new way to complete the trade.

The Red Sox have agreed to send Price (wrist) and Mookie Betts to the Dodgers in exchange for Alex Verdugo as part of a three-team trade with the Twins, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The full details of the trade have yet to be announced, but Boston figures to send significant money to Los Angeles with Betts under contract for $27 million and Price $96 million. According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Kenta Maeda will move from the Dodgers to the Twins and Brusdar Graterol will be sent from the Twins to the Red Sox to finish the deal. Price is coming off a down season in which he posted a 4.28 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 128:32 K:BB over 107.1 innings, and he finished the year on the injured list after late-season wrist surgery. The veteran lefty is set to slot into a Dodgers starting rotation that already includes the likes of Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler.

Assistant general manager Brian O'Halloran confirmed Monday that Price's recent left wrist surgery "went well" and added that the team expects the southpaw to be fully ready to go for spring training, Tom Caron of NESN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering that Price's procedure didn't address any structural damage and was merely needed to remove a cyst, he shouldn't face an extended recovery period, putting him on track for a relatively normal offseason. With fewer than 110 innings covered in two of the past three seasons, Price's durability is becoming more of a question mark these days, but he's still been an above-average starter when he's been able to take the hill. Though his 4.28 ERA and 1.31 WHIP this season represented his worst showings in both categories since 2010, a 21 K-BB% -- the second-best mark of his career -- offers reason for optimism about a bounce back in 2020 if health prevails.

Price (wrist) underwent successful surgery to have a cyst removed from his left wrist, Guerin Austin of NESN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price is expected to have a normal offseason and should be ready to go by the start of spring training. The veteran left-hander made just 22 starts this season due to injuries, finishing 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 128 strikeouts in 107.1 innings.

Price will undergo surgery Tuesday to have a cyst removed from his left wrist, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price was already ruled out for the season because of his wrist issue, and he won't waste any time getting it addressed. Price is expected to have a normal offseason after he recovers from the procedure, and he should be good to go when spring training rolls around.

Price, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season, will visit a hand/wrist specialist, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

This suggests that surgery could be on the table for Price, as the Red Sox look to get him right for the 2020 season. After throwing over 220 innings annually from 2014-2016, Price has thrown just 358 combined MLB innings from 2017-2019 (averaging 119.1 innings per year). He is under contract through the 2022 season.

Manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that Price (wrist) will be shut down for the season, OMF on WEEI reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cora indicated Tuesday that Price's season was likely over, but he went a step further Wednesday, and confirmed that Price will not pitch again in 2019. Price will end the season making 22 starts, going 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.31 WHIP -- his highest marks in those categories since 2009. It remains to be seen what the next step will be in his recovery, but that decision will be made with an eye on 2020.

Manager Alex Cora noted after Tuesday's 15-inning loss to the Giants that Price (wrist) will "most likely" be shut down for the season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cora hinted prior to the series opener that things were likely trending in this direction for Price, but the skipper offered more definitive word on the matter while meeting with the media following the marathon loss. Price is slated to meet with the Red Sox's medical staff before a formal ruling on the southpaw's status is made, but with Boston nine and a half games off the pace for the American League's second wild-card spot, there's seemingly little to gain by having him ramp up again. The 34-year-old has been out since Sept. 1 with a cyst on his left wrist and hasn't progressed as anticipated after receiving a cortisone shot to alleviate the pain.
