David Price was hoping a cortisone injection in early August would quickly heal his left wrist and provide a road to recovery before the 2019 season ended, but it’s not looking that way.
Price still hasn’t been able to throw anything but fastballs while trying to recover from a cyst in the same wrist in which he dealt with carpal tunnel syndrome last year.
His season is likely over.
“Most likely we’re going to get together again just to go over a few things and see where we’re heading, but honestly, it feels like most likely we’re going to shut him down,” manager Alex Cora said. “But we have to go through the whole process and see how David feels about it.”
With the Red Sox out of contention and just two weeks left in the season, team officials planned to talk to Price on Tuesday about potential surgery that would start the healing before the offseason.
