The Red Sox reinstated Price (wrist) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

He'll slot back into the rotation for the first time since Aug. 4 after a cyst on his left wrist kept him sidelined. Though he didn't head out on a proper minor-league rehab assignment beforehand, Price geared up for Sunday's outing by completing a 54-pitch simulated game Tuesday. Price is expected to have his workload monitored carefully in his return from the IL but shouldn't face any significant restrictions in any starts that follow.

Price (wrist) is scheduled to start Sunday against the Angels, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price has been cleared to rejoin the rotation after emerging from his three-inning simulated game Tuesday with no issues. The southpaw has been on the shelf since Aug. 5 with a cyst in his left wrist and only threw 54 pitches in his simulated outing, so he'll likely face some sort of limited pitch count in his first start back. Prior to landing on the IL, Price compiled a 4.36 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 126:31 K:BB across 21 starts (105.1 innings).

Manager Alex Cora said Price (wrist) "looked good" in his three-inning simulated game Tuesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports. "He spun a few breaking balls, too, which is a great sign," Cora said. "Let's see how he reacts [Wednesday] and we go from there."

EDGE Analysis

On the shelf since Aug. 5 with a cyst in his left wrist, Price tossed 54 pitches in the simulated game, allowing no hits and striking out two while facing teammates Marco Hernandez, Sandy Leon, Chris Owings and Sam Travis. Like Cora, Price expressed similar enthusiasm about the performance, making it likely that the southpaw will get the green light to rejoin the rotation Saturday or Sunday versus the Angels.

Price (wrist) expects to return during Boston's weekend series against the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price was originally expected to pitch Sunday but needed a bit more time. He said that he could have pitched Tuesday or Wednesday in Colorado if not for the fact that he would have had to hit in the National League park. He threw a simulated game Tuesday instead.

Price (wrist) won't start Sunday's game against the Padres but will throw a simulated game Tuesday instead, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was rumored earlier in the day that Price would return in time to toe the rubber for Sunday's series finale, but the team has elected to go a different route. The southpaw will toss a sim game Tuesday in Denver and the next step in his rehab will be determined shortly after.

Price (wrist) will likely start Sunday against the Padres, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team is listing Sunday's starter as TBD, but Abraham notes it will likely be Price, who threw another intense bullpen session Thursday. It's unclear exactly what Boston is waiting for to confirm Price's return to the rotation. For those with fantasy shares in the southpaw it is pivotal that Price get that Sunday start, as the team begins next week with a road trip to Coors Field.

Price (wrist) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price felt good after his bullpen session Tuesday and will seemingly ramp things up Thursday before being reevaluated. If all goes well during Thursday's mound session, there's a chance the left-hander could rejoin Boston's rotation as soon as Sunday against the Padres.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora has not ruled out Price (wrist) returning this weekend in time to pitch Sunday against the Padres, Jason Kates of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price tossed a bullpen session Tuesday and will be evaluated Wednesday. "We'll have a better idea [Wednesday] where we're at with him," the manager said. "Let's see how he goes now and see how he bounces back and we'll talk about it later." The Red Sox are in the middle of a stretch where there are several off days, so they can get by without Price for another turn, but they are also fighting for a wild card spot and could use someone of Price's caliber to assist in that quest.

Price (wrist) felt strong during Tuesday's bullpen session and is hopeful to come off the injured list soon, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price fired another successful bullpen Tuesday, so the next step figures to be facing live hitters. If all goes well, he could be cleared to return from the IL without completing a rehab assignment, considering he's only been sidelined for two weeks with a wrist injury.

Price (wrist) is scheduled to throw his next bullpen session Tuesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Price apparently endured no complications with his left wrist coming out of Saturday's side session, during which he tossed 30 pitches consisting of fastballs and changeups. He'll likely incorporate more breaking pitches into Tuesday's workout before the Red Sox determine Price's next step. Since he's only been sidelined for two weeks, Price may not require a rehab assignment or simulated game before gaining clearance to re-enter the rotation as soon as Aug. 25 against the Padres.
