The big story heading into the long holiday weekend is the somewhat surprising announcement that injured Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price is scheduled to start at Chicago on Monday afternoon. Price, who surely would have been a top-10 starting pitcher in ESPN average live drafts had he not developed elbow woes early in spring training, did not undergo surgery. It’s frankly a bit hard to tell whether he’s even close to 100 percent healthy. Thursday’s announcement was a surprise. Price remains owned, somewhat surprisingly, in more than 92 percent of ESPN standard formats, so chances are good that fantasy owners have a certain immediate expectation.
