The Red Sox travel to face the Angels after Wednesday's game against the Colorado Rockies and the rotation could get a much needed boost.

Price was emerging as the Sox most consistent starter in 2019 through mid July posting a 3.16 ERA through 17 starts with 10.39 K/9.

Then, Price had old drama emerge with legend Dennis Eckersley. Since then, Price has pitched 17.0 innings in four starts with a 10.59 ERA, 2.18 WHIP, and 24 K to 7 BB.

Overall, Price has pitched to a 4.36 ERA with a career best pace of 10.8 K/9 in year 4 of his contract.

Will the return of David Price be enough for the Red Sox to make a run at a postseason berth? Probably not. But the bullpen, which has pitched 33.1 innings in the last 7 games (excluding the finale of the suspended game against Kansas City), will be happy to see him return to the rotation.
