Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price is likely to start the season on the disabled list because of a sore pitching elbow. Starting the second season of a $217-million, seven-year contract, Price has not yet appeared in an exhibition game. Price, the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner with Tampa Bay, was 17-9 with a 3.99 ERA last year. He felt discomfort in his left elbow after a two- inning simulated game on Feb. 28.
Drs. James Andrews and Neal ElAttrache said Price would not need surgery or an injection.
