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.

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.
