The left-hander has posted a 4.33 ERA and 21/8 K/BB ratio over 27 innings across five starts for the Red Sox this season. Prior to arriving in Boston ahead of the 2016 campaign, Price notably spent time with the Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays since the start of the 2008 regular season.

Since returning from his early-season injury, Price has mostly pitched well.
