Price will not opt out of his current deal with the Red Sox, which will keep him under contract through the 2022 season, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price is owed $127 million across the next four years after electing to remain with Boston on the contract he inked in December of 2015. The left-hander reversed the postseason narrative that dogged him throughout his career during these past few weeks, helping the Red Sox win the World Series against the Dodgers with a 1.98 ERA in three appearances over 13.2 innings in the Fall Classic. Price will earn $31 million during the 2019 season and $32 million in the three subsequent campaigns. Across 30 starts this past season, he logged a 3.58 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 9.1 K/9.

Price will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chris Sale was originally supposed to get the starting nod for Boston's potential clinching game, but manager Alex Cora said he likes Price at Dodger Stadium, so they'll go with him instead. The 33-year-old last pitched in Game 2, in which he navigated 6.2 frames while allowing just two runs on four hits. He'll face off with Dodger ace Clayton Kershaw in the final game in Los Angeles.

Price will start the second game of the World Series against the Dodgers on Wednesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price finally shook off the demons in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros, winning for the first time in the playoffs as a starter and sending his team to the World Series. The 33-year-old has a career 5.04 ERA in 85.2 playoff innings. His only World Series experience came a decade ago with the Rays, when he made a pair of relief appearances as his team fell in five games to the Phillies, allowing two runs (one earned) in 3.1 innings.

Price shut out the Astros on three hits with no walks over six innings in a win as the Red Sox won the American League Pennant with a 4-1 decision Thursday in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

A double off the bat of Yuli Gurriel was the only extra base hit Price permitted in a stellar outing that earned him his first win of the postseason and propelled the Red Sox to the World Series. The dominant performance was in stark contrast to the left-hander's first two postseason starts, as he had pitched 6.1 innings and allowed seven runs on eight hits and six walks while striking out four. The 33-year-old is now 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in the playoffs.

Price will pitch Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Due to Chris Sale's stomach illness, Price will line up to throw on short rest in Houston after starting Game 2 on Sunday. During that outing, he allowed four earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four across 4.2 innings. The left-hander will go up against Justin Verlander with the Astros' season on the line.

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 is slated to start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price will face off against Masahiro Tanaka in Game 2 after Chris Sale takes the hill for Boston in the series opener. Price posted a 3.58 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 177 punchouts over 176 frames (30 starts) in 2018 and will look to carry his success into the postseason.

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.
