Price (wrist) could be shut down for the season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price hasn't pitched since September first due to tightness in his wrist. He's set to meet with the Red Sox's coaching staff and front office Tuesday to determine whether or not it's worth him trying to get back on the mound before the end of the season.

Price (wrist) has not made the progress the Red Sox hoped he would this weekend, but he is still hopeful he will be able to return before the end of the season, Guerin Austin of NESN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price played catch again Saturday and feels OK but not good enough for the Red Sox to pencil him in for a start in the coming days. The fact that Boston is out of the playoff mix is not expected to factor into whether Price returns this year, so hopefully he will be able to make at least one or two starts and finish on a high note.

Price (wrist) could return to the rotation sometime next week, Lauren Campbell of NESN reports. "It won't be in Philly," manager Alex Cora said of the possibility of Price returning this weekend. "Most likely next week if everything goes well this week."

EDGE Analysis

While the Red Sox won't be going to the playoffs, Cora said that everyone likes to compete and nobody wants to finish the season shut down or on the injured list, so that won't factor into whether or not Price returns this season. He threw changeups along with his fastball in Wednesday's bullpen session and will likely throw again sometime this weekend before the Red Sox determine the next step. Boston has a home series against the Giants followed by a series in Tampa Bay next week.

Price (wrist) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox have not said whether Price will return this season now that they are eliminated from the playoff hunt. If he is able to return, he would likely make one or two starts at most and would probably be on a pitch count.

Price (wrist) has already been ruled out for the upcoming series in Toronto, and he could be shut down for the season as the Red Sox's playoff chances continue to dwindle, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

EDGE Analysis

FanGraphs gives Boston a 1.2 percent chance to make the playoffs, so it would make sense for them to at least take a cautious approach to bringing Price back from this injury. He was on the IL due to a cyst on his left wrist from Aug. 8 through Sept. 1 and then felt tightness in the same wrist during a bullpen session Wednesday.

Price (wrist) will not pitch in the upcoming series in Toronto, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

He played catch Saturday and Sunday after feeling tightness in his wrist during a bullpen session earlier in the week. The Red Sox have an off day Friday so the soonest we could see Price return would be next weekend in Philadelphia.

Price (wrist) threw off flat ground Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price felt tightness in his wrist during a bullpen session Wednesday, causing him to be scratched from his start Friday against the Yankees. The Red Sox will check on Price on Sunday to see how his wrist responded to Saturday's session. If all goes well, he could start in Toronto sometime next week.

Price (wrist) is no longer scheduled to pitch Friday against the Yankees, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price felt some tightness in his wrist during a bullpen session Wednesday, prompting the Red Sox to scratch him from his scheduled start against the Yankees. According to Alex Speier of The Boston Globe, the southpaw is able to throw fastballs but experiences issues when throwing his cutter and changeup. He's scheduled to see a specialist Thursday. While the Red Sox have yet to establish a timetable for his return, Cotillo notes that Price could return during the team's series in Toronto next week, which begins Tuesday and runs through Sept. 12. Boston is expected to go with a bullpen day Friday, with Jhoulys Chacin representing a candidate to serve as the opener.

Price will make his next start Friday against the Yankees, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price takes the ball to kick off a four-game series at Fenway Park, the first time the left-hander will pitch at home since July 30. He last pitched Sunday after coming off the injured list, lasting two innings and 45 pitches against the Angels. He will presumably pitch deeper Friday.

Price allowed a hit and a walk over two scoreless innings Sunday, striking out two in his no-decision during the win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Price needed 45 pitches to get through those two innings and it was his first appearance Aug. 4 after dealing with a wrist injury. His ERA fell a bit from 4.36 to 4.28 alongside a 128:32 K:BB. Price will host the rival Yankees on Saturday and should have a longer leash.
