The Red Sox will not lack relief pitchers behind Doug Fister during Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday, Manager John Farrell said he anticipates David Price being available after throwing 38 pitches over 2⅔ innings on Friday. Farrell also did not rule out using Chris Sale, who threw 100 pitches in Game 1 on Thursday. “It’s possible, yes,” Farrell said. No starter has been named for Game 4 on Monday if the Red Sox get that far. But if Price does not pitch Sunday, he is a candidate. “I think that what we’re seeing is 40 pitches is about the comfort zone which he’s been built out at,” Farrell said. “He’s throwing the ball very well.” Price has pitched in relief six times since Sept. 17 and thrown 11⅓ scoreless innings, giving up only four hits with three walks and 15 strikeouts.
