David Price vows to stop playing video games, says elbow is 'pristine'

Alex Cora Doesn't Think David Price's Carpal Tunnel Came From Team's Fortnite ObsessionMore

Red Sox lefty David Price won't miss his next start despite his recent carpal tunnel diagnosis, the pitcher said Thursday.

Although Price was scratched from Boston's line-up for Wednesday's Major League Baseball showdown with the New York Yankees due to reoccurrence of numbness in his pitching hand, he will make his scheduled start against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He recorded an ugly 8.47 ERA in his three previous starts, so hopefully Price can get back on track moving forward.

Victor of the 2012 AL Cy Young Award with Tampa Bay, Price is 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA in seven starts during his third season with the Red Sox after agreeing to a $215 million, seven-year contract. McCaffrey quoted Price as saying that he and some teammates regularly play the popular game for hours at a time, and adding, "You can lose track of time whenever you're playing it".

If he has to quit video games to get better, he said he would. I've always played video games; with my teammates, in the offseason, at the field, in the hotel. "That's kind of my generation". If I need to shut down video games and pick up a new hobby, then so be it.

Price will return to the club on Thursday to throw a bullpen session and could make his next start as soon as Saturday.

"From what I know, it was a lot of testing and that's all I can tell you", Cora said. His condition will be treated with dry needles, similar to acupuncture.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, head trainer Brad Pearson, pitching coach Dana LeVangie and bullpen coach Craig Bjornson were looking on. Could it be his career as a pitcher which requires him to slowly destroy his arm with a violent and repetitive pitching motion? "And I said, 'No, ma'am". I don't think it had anything to do with those starts.
