Oct. 9 10:48 PM PT11:48 PM MT12:48 AM CT1:48 AM ET1:48 ET5:48 GMT13:48 10:48 PM MST12:48 AM EST1:18 AM VEN9:48 UAE12:48 AM CT-David Price allowed four hits and one walk without giving up a run in 4.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Houston Astros 10-3 on Sunday. Price struck out four, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 1.05 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price's postseason failures are well-documented, but the expensive left-hander certainly gave the Red Sox their money's worth after entering with his team holding a tenuous 4-3 lead in the fourth inning. He finished with 57 pitches, his highest total since landing on the DL with an elbow issue in late July, and certainly won't be available for Game 4. He could resurface if the series winds up going the distance, though.

Price struck out two, ending the game with a 3.71 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price was quite sharp in his first outing since being sidelined nearly two months with a sore elbow. Though the former Tampa ace likely won't be tabbed to start over the remainder of the season, he could wind up as a valuable piece out of the bullpen should the Red Sox reach the playoffs.
July 28 8:23 AM PT9:23 AM MT10:23 AM CT11:23 AM ET11:23 ET15:23 GMT23:23 8:23 AM MST10:23 AM EST10:53 AM VEN19:23 UAE10:23 AM CT-The Boston Red Sox activated Price from the 10-day disabled list and declared the left-hander will be used out of the bullpen for the rest of the season, the team announced Thursday.
Analysis: Price has been sidelined since July 28 with left elbow inflammation. The 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner began the season on the disabled list with a left elbow strain before returning on May 29. He posted a 5-3 mark with a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts before making another trek to the disabled list.
July 23 10:47 AM PT11:47 AM MT12:47 PM CT1:47 PM ET13:47 ET17:47 GMT1:47 10:47 AM MST12:47 PM EST1:17 PM VEN21:47 UAE12:47 PM CT-David Price fell to 5-3, allowing six runs - five earned - on seven hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Angels 7-3 on Saturday. Price struck out five, ending the game with a 3.82 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price came in 2-0 with a spectacular 0.90 ERA through his first three starts of July, but couldn't sustain that level of excellence while being dealt a second loss to the Angels this season. The well-paid lefty will try to bounce back in Friday's meeting with the visiting Royals, and he sports a solid 2.67 ERA at home in 2017.
July 17 9:44 AM PT10:44 AM MT11:44 AM CT12:44 PM ET12:44 ET16:44 GMT0:44 9:44 AM MST11:44 AM EST12:14 PM VEN20:44 UAE11:44 AM CT-David Price improved to 5-2, allowing seven hits over a season-high 8.0 scoreless innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 3-0 on Sunday. Price struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.39 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The standout lefty proved once again that the elbow issues that sidelined him for the season's first two months are no longer a major issue. Price heads into Saturday's visit to Anaheim 3-0 with a 1.67 ERA in his last four starts, and he hasn't allowed a home run while amassing 29 strikeouts over that strong stretch.
July 9 2:27 PM PT3:27 PM MT4:27 PM CT5:27 PM ET17:27 ET21:27 GMT5:27 2:27 PM MST4:27 PM EST4:57 PM VEN1:27 UAE (+1)4:27 PM CT-David Price allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in 6.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Sunday. Price struck out five, ending the game with a 3.91 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price heads into the All-Star break having recorded four straight quality starts to lower his ERA under 4 for the first time this season.
July 5 7:50 AM PT8:50 AM MT9:50 AM CT10:50 AM ET10:50 ET14:50 GMT22:50 7:50 AM MST9:50 AM EST10:20 AM VEN18:50 UAE9:50 AM CT-David Price improved to 4-2, allowing six hits and two walks over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Texas Rangers 11-4 on Tuesday. Price struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.02 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This was Price's best performance yet this season after a thoroughly mediocre June.
June 30 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET11:41 ET15:41 GMT23:41 8:41 AM MST10:41 AM EST11:11 AM VEN19:41 UAE10:41 AM CT-David Price improved to 3-2, allowing three runs on six hits in 7.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 6-3 on Thursday. Price struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.61 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The accomplished lefty matched a season high in strikeouts and threw 112 pitches, his most since returning from an elbow injury in late May. Though Price has hardly been dominant - he's allowed at least three runs in five straight starts and owns a 5.28 ERA during that stretch - he's at least showing signs of regaining his prior form.
June 25 10:05 PM PT11:05 PM MT12:05 AM CT1:05 AM ET1:05 ET5:05 GMT13:05 10:05 PM MST12:05 AM EST12:35 AM VEN9:05 UAE12:05 AM CT-Price fell to 2-2, allowing three runs - two earned - on six hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Saturday. Price struck out five, ending the game with a 4.76 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price, who started the season on the disabled list with a strained left elbow, had a decent outing for the third time in six starts.
June 19 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET13:15 ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:45 PM VEN21:15 UAE12:15 PM CT-David Price improved to 2-1, allowing three runs on eight hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Houston Astros 6-5 on Sunday. Price struck out three, ending the game with a 5.14 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: In five games since coming off the DL on May 29, Price has issued 14 walks in 28 innings for 4.5 walks per nine innings. From 2013-16, he had a ratio of 1.65 walks per 9 - fifth best in the majors. Asked to evaluate how he's pitching this season: ''It's just been terrible,'' Price said. ''It's been bad. It's not me. I can throw the baseball better. That's the bottom line.'' He'll make his next start Saturday against the Angels.
June 14 9:13 PM PT10:13 PM MT11:13 PM CT12:13 AM ET0:13 ET4:13 GMT12:13 9:13 PM MST11:13 PM EST11:43 PM VEN8:13 UAE11:13 PM CT-David Price allowed three runs on four hits and four walks in 6.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Tuesday.

Price struck out four, ending the game with a 5.29 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Another nightmare visit to Yankee Stadium for Price, who's now 0-4 with an 8.72 ERA in four starts at the venue since signing his mega-deal with the Red Sox prior to last season. The embattled lefty will look to bounce back in what should be a softer spot Tuesday at home against the Phillies.
June 4 9:21 PM PT10:21 PM MT11:21 PM CT12:21 AM ET0:21 ET4:21 GMT12:21 9:21 PM MST11:21 PM EST11:51 PM VEN8:21 UAE11:21 PM CT-David Price improved to 1-0, allowing one run on three hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Saturday. Price struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.00 ERA and 0.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price shut the Orioles out through the first six innings and threw 92 pitches in his second start back from an elbow strain. The five-time All-Star has quickly regained his form, though he draws an recent nemesis when he visits Yankee Stadium on Thursday. He went 1-3 with a 7.89 ERA in five matchups with the Bronx Bombers last season.
May 29 2:59 PM PT3:59 PM MT4:59 PM CT5:59 PM ET17:59 ET21:59 GMT5:59 2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST5:29 PM VEN1:59 UAE (+1)4:59 PM CT-David Price allowed three runs on two hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Monday. Price struck out four, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 0.80 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Price, who missed the first part of the year with a left elbow strain, threw 88 pitches in an uneven season debut. He gave up a three-run homer and hit two batters but was in line for the win before the White Sox scored twice in the seventh.
Mar. 2 9:03 AM PT10:03 AM MT11:03 AM CT12:03 PM ET12:03 ET17:03 GMT1:03 10:03 AM MST12:03 PM EST12:33 PM VEN21:03 UAE11:03 AM CT-Price will make his season debut Monday in Chicago after making his second rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, allowing six runs - three earned - seven hits and a walk in 3 2/3 innings.
Analysis: Manager John Farrell said scouts liked what they saw of Price despite his unimpressive line. We'll find out if they were right.
