-- Dennis Eckersley is funny.

On NESN Tuesday night, Tim Wakefield remarked that David Price is “funny” after Price joked after the game about his carpal tunnel injury from playing Fortnite.

Alex Reimer tweeted about this and Dennis Eckersley, with whom Price had a verbal altercation on the team plane last season, retweeted it.

“Tim Wakefield on @NESN says he thinks David Price is “funny.” Something tells me he’s lying,” Reimer tweeted. And Eckersley retweeted it.

Price joked he “might not be able to go” because of Fortnite when asked if he’s looking forward to facing the Yankees in their upcoming series.

-- A dead body was found in a walk-in freezer at the Braves’ SunTrust Park in Atlanta on Tuesday.

"This is still an active investigation so I am unable to speculate whether or not foul play is a factor," Cobb County police officer Sarah O'Hara said.

Police confirmed the man was a third-party contractor and his body was found by another member of the same company.

They also said officers responded to a "call of a deceased person located at SunTrust Park" before the Braves' game against the Reds.

The Braves declined to comment and the name of the deceased has not been released.

It's something that I'm still trying to figure out when it comes to how much intensity I can put on that knee." -- Steven Wright, on his knee injury that sent him to the DL on Tuesday
