Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price has been placed on the 10-day injured list because of tendinitis in his pitching elbow.
Boston announced the move Monday, a day ahead of Price’s scheduled start at Baltimore.
The 33-year-old Price is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA in six starts, and has allowed three runs or fewer in his past four appearances.
The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner with Tampa Bay, Price was slowed by elbow problems throughout 2017. He did not make his first start for Boston until May 29 because of a strained elbow, and did not pitch for the Red Sox between July 22 and Sept. 17 owing to elbow inflammation.
He was 6-3 with a 3.38 ERA in 11 starts and five relief appearances, then rebounded to go 16-7 with a 3.58 ERA in 30 starts last year as Boston won the World Series.
Boston made the roster move retroactive to Friday. The Red Sox selected the contract of 28-year-old right-hander Ryan Weber from Triple-A Pawtucket.
