This Just In
Prior to tonight's game against the Los Angeles Angels, the Boston Red Sox placed left-handed pitcher David Price on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to August 5 with a left wrist injury. Price underwent an MRI on his left wrist that revealed a TFCC cyst that was treated with a cortisone shot. To fill Price's spot on the 25-man roster, the club recalled right-handed pitcher Hector Velázquez from Triple-A Pawtucket. President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement. Price, 33, has made 21 starts for Boston this season and is 7-5 with a 4.36 ERA (51 ER/105.1 IP). The left-hander most recently pitched on August 4 against the New York Yankees, after being reinstated from the paternity leave list prior to the game. He reached 10 years of major league service time earlier this season and currently ranks fourth among active American League pitchers with 150 career wins. He earned his 150th career win on July 7 at Detroit, and has a career record of 150-80 (.652) with a 3.31 ERA (746 ER/2,027.2 IP) in 320 career appearances (310 starts) with Tampa Bay (2008-14), Detroit (2014-15), Toronto (2015), and Boston (2016-19). Velázquez, 30, has made 24 appearances (eight starts) for Boston this season, posting a 5.67 ERA (29 ER/46.0 IP). The right-hander has also made six appearances with Pawtucket and owns a 4.05 ERA (3 ER/6.2 IP) with a .217 opponent batting average. He last pitched on August 6, throwing a scoreless inning against the Columbus Clippers with zero hits or walks allowed. Velázquez made his major league debut with Boston in 2017 after having his contract purchased from Campeche of the Mexican League and has since gone 11-7 with a 3.87 ERA (67 ER/155.2 IP) in 79 major league appearances (19 starts).
