Red Sox believe they have fixed issue with David Price
The Boston Red Sox really need David Price to be better than he was in the ALDS, but they think they’ve done something to help him fix his recent issues.
According to manager Alex Cora, the Red Sox believe they have found an issue with Price dating back to the regular season, and are confident that they’ve made an adjustment that will end his recent struggles.
“I do feel with that adjustment he’ll be back to the guy that pitched in the middle of the summer and he is going to dominate and be a huge part of what we do,” Cora said, via Ryan Hannable of WEEI.
Cora identified Price’s final regular season start against Baltimore, in which he labored through five innings, as the start of his problems. He proceeded to surrender two home runs to the New York Yankees in a Game 2 start that didn’t see him make it through the second inning.
The Red Sox will be very encouraged if they’ve found a fix for Price. That said, maybe just not facing the Yankees will help him.
