David Price is a clubhouse cancer

David Price is a clubhouse cancer

Price was scheduled to be Boston's starter Friday night when the Red Sox open a series at Fenway Park against Kansas City. All that wear and tear is beginning to show.

After Price's season debut was delayed until May 29 due to elbow troubles, he was bothered by a blister and split fingernail on his pitching hand.

But it's an even bigger blow for Price, who must want nothing more than to pitch well the rest of the season and put some of these controversies behind him. The 31-year-old has led the majors in innings pitched two of the last three seasons, working 230 last year in his first season in Boston.

The news of Price's latest injury dripped out Friday, first with a report from the Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy that the pitcher's elbow was "barking". Price has put together stretches of dominance here and there in his time with the Red Sox, but things have just looked off with him. Price was reportedly set off by Eckersley saying "yuck" during a broadcast when starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez's stats from a rehab start were shown on TV. Price has the ability to opt-out of his contract following the 2018 season, but with each new elbow flare-up, the chances he plays out all seven years in Boston increase exponentially.
