Price did not factor into the decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, pitching five innings and giving up four runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out seven.

EDGE Analysis

Price was a victim of poor defense and unfriendly stadium dimensions, giving up three first-inning runs on a walk, a fielding error and a 326-foot home run that just managed to sneak around Pesky's Pole. He limited the Dodgers to one run the rest of the way, although he allowed at least one baserunner in every frame and needed a season-high 113 pitches to complete five innings. The no-decision snaps a string of three consecutive winning outings for Price, though he was spared a loss when the Red Sox rallied for a pair of runs in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old will carry a 7-2 record along with a 3.16 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 102:24 K:BB into his next scheduled start in Baltimore on Friday.

Price (7-2) secured the victory after allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Price surrendered his lone run of the day in the first inning on a double to left field, but he'd settle down and finish his outing with four scoreless frames. The 33-year-old lefty has now turned in four consecutive outings with three or fewer runs allowed, improving his ERA from 3.52 to 3.24 over that stretch.

Price (6-2) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while recording seven strikeouts across six innings to earn a victory against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran left-hander hadn't walked a batter in his last 11 frames, but he struggled with his control Tuesday. It didn't help the Blue Jays score much, though, as Price earned his fourth win in his last six outings. Price hasn't suffered a loss since April 27. He is 6-2 with a 3.33 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 78.1 innings and will next face the Tigers on Sunday.

Price (5-2) picked up the win after allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits while striking out nine over six innings against the White Sox on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Price persevered through a drizzly night in Boston, throwing 97 pitches (72 strikes) to record his seventh quality start. He rebounded from a couple of short starts and pitched at least six innings for the ninth time in 14 starts. With Boston headed out to London for a weekend series with the Yankees, the rotation is getting spaced out. Price will pitch on six days rest next Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Price will make his next start Tuesday versus the White Sox, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price initially lined up to start Monday's series opener but the Red Sox will instead elect to give him an extra day of rest. The veteran left-hander was pulled after 73 pitches despite allowing only one run over five innings during his start last Tuesday, but the team has said he isn't injured and is just playing it safe heading into the All-Star break. Price has a 3.39 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 73:15 K:BB through 66.1 innings this season.

Price's removal of Tuesday's start after 73 pitches and five innings was not due to injury, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price pitched well in what turned out to be a 17-inning game, so questions were naturally raised. Manager Alex Cora said the early hook was "kind of" planned with the invention of preserving the left-hander's longevity and availability over the course of the season. "We're going to take advantage of the next 10, 12 days with the off days and all of that," Cora said. "With him going off the IL and the short starts and all that stuff, we have to make sure he's OK. He's OK, actually. It's one of those that we felt that today was one those we were short, all out and move on.​"

Price didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's marathon extra-innings loss to the Twins, allowing one run on four hits over five innings while striking out two.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw got lifted after only 73 pitches (49 strikes), a decision that looked worse and worse as the 17-inning affair dragged on and the Red Sox were forced to go deeper into their bullpen. Price will take a 3.39 ERA and 73:15 K:BB through 66.1 innings into his next start Monday, at home against the White Sox.

Price lasted just 1.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Thursday, giving up six earned runs on five hits, striking out two and walking one as the Red Sox eventually pulled out a 7-6 victory.

EDGE Analysis

Price couldn't extend his run of three straight quality starts, as the Rangers struck for four earned runs in the first inning and two more in the second, chasing the veteran from the contest after he recorded just four outs and tossed 49 pitches. It was forgettable start, but Price's numbers still look good overall so far in his age-33 season, as he's sporting a 3.52 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and a 71:15 K:BB over 61.1 innings.

Price (4-2) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 over six innings to earn the win in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Price salvaged the day after Boston was put down easily in the afternoon game. It was the second straight weekend in which Price has been a stopper. Six days after halting the team's four-game losing streak with a win at Yankee Stadium, Price stopped Boston's two-game skid Saturday. The left-hander has emerged as the staff ace early on, sporting a 1.88 ERA over his last nine starts. Price next takes the mound Thursday at home against the Rangers, a team that surprisingly leads Boston in the wild-card playoff race.

Price (3-2) earned the win Sunday over by holding the Yankees to two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six through 6.1 innings of work.

EDGE Analysis

Price held the Yankees scoreless through three before beginning to unravel in the fourth. With one out, the southpaw gave up a home run to Luke Voit, followed by three consecutive singles to load the bases. Gio Urshela then hit a sacrifice fly to score Gary Sanchez and cut the Yankees' deficit to one. Price escaped further trouble when Aaron Hicks got caught stealing home for the third out. Despite the messy inning, the 33-year-old looked sharp overall as he bounced back from a tough 2018 during which he went 0-3 with a 10.34 ERA in four starts against the Yankees. Sunday's win also marks his first at Yankee Stadium. Price will carry a 2.83 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 59:12 K:BB into Friday's matchup against Tampa Bay.
