David Price will throw a session Friday in Baltimore, his fourth since being shut down in February.
“He threw the ball good,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday morning. “His planned session of long-toss went as anticipated, and he’s on tap for a bullpen [session] tomorrow when we get to Baltimore.”
Though the brief shutdown from mound work created some external worrying that Price had experienced a setback, Farrell said that it’s all part of the recovery process.
“I don’t think it was too fast,” Farrell said of this past week’s progression. “It was the highest volume and intensity of work relative to the previous weeks that he’s been going through rehab. Maybe a little bit of a slowdown [the past few days] but certainly not a setback, and he’ll be back on the mound tomorrow.”
The Red Sox are hoping Price continues to throw without setbacks. No timetable has been set for his return.
