Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price said he feels ready to return to the rotation after throwing 75 pitches in a simulated game Sunday.
“If I didn’t feel confident in my abilities to go out there and pitch well, I wouldn’t do it,” Price said, per Trevor Hass of MLB.com. “I wouldn’t put myself at risk, and I wouldn’t put the team at risk. We’ve taken a good amount of time since it happened. I feel like I’m ready to go.”
Price was originally scheduled to pitch a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket, which was postponed by rain. He instead threw 75 pitches to Blake Swihart and Aneury Tavarez in a batting cage to test an elbow strain suffered in March.
