Just when it looked like the Red Sox' starting rotation was edging closer to normalcy it may have taken another hit.

With two outs in the third inning, David Price was struck in the left wrist while trying to defend himself from a 102.6 mph line-drive off the bat of Austin Dean. Price recovered in time to get the out at first base. The team classified the injury as a left wrist contusion.

Hector Velazquez came on to replace Price to begin the fourth inning. 

Prior to leaving the game, the Red Sox starter allowed three runs on five hits, including a solo home run off the bat of Derek Dietrich.
