David Price exited Sunday’s start against the Red Sox after just four innings when he was hit in the chest by a line drive, sending him to the hospital and leaving the left-hander with an imprint of the baseball on his skin.
Three days later the bruising is almost gone and Price feels good enough to make his scheduled Friday start versus the Blue Jays, telling Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times: “It was just more scary than anything else, I’m sure. I’m all good now.”
Price taking his turn in the rotation Friday also lines him up to pitch the Rays’ season finale next Wednesday against the Yankees, with Tampa Bay perhaps needing a win to get into the playoffs or at least force a one-game playoff with Boston.
